Parties are always a wonderful way to spend your Halloween. Get your friends together and participate in some fun activities like apple bobbing, carving pumpkins, dressing in costumes while making sure to stay safe with covid precautions!

  1. Spooky Movies:

Binging movies is my favorite pastime! If you are looking for an in-person movie experience, in theaters right now is Halloween Kills which follows the story line of the Halloween movie! If you wanted to just relax at home, Netflix has a fantastic trilogy of movies called Fear Street. It’s perfect for Halloween time as it is “after a series of brutal slayings, a teen and her friends take on an evil force that’s plagued their notorious town for centuries.”.
