Halloween is typically a time of year that brings a neighborhood together. This year’s festivities may look a little different than we’re used to, but don’t let that scare you away from celebrating! With a little creativity you can still have a safe and spooky Halloween, and maybe even start some new traditions. Here are a few ideas to keep the Halloween spirit alive.

Children dressed up in Halloween costumes


Decorate

Get in the spirit with spider webs and ghosts! Jack-o’-lanterns are also a staple for the season. Choose a scary or silly design, or you could even carve a Cameron’s jack-o’-lantern to decorate the front porch! Your neighbors will love seeing the decorations from afar.

Costumes

You may not be walking door to door with your kids, or manning the front door and handing out candy, but costumes are still a go! Try organizing a neighborhood drive-by costume parade to see everyone’s attire. Send photos to friends and family, or have a virtual get-together. Also, acknowledge the kids’ cool costumes – they’ll really appreciate it!

Be Generous

Candy is the name of the game. Chocolate, fruity, gummy, nougat, you can’t really go wrong. Even better if you’re able to provide full-size candy bars. Try putting a table in the driveway with individually packaged treats for grab-and-go. Or, drop off surprise treat bags on your friends’ and neighbors’ doorsteps ahead of time.

Be Inclusive

A lot of kids out there have food allergies, which means they can’t actually eat much of the typical Halloween candy. Check out the Teal Pumpkin Project for some non-food treats that will make sure these kids still have a fun and safe experience.

Treats for the Parents

Why should kids have all the fun? Consider having a basket at the ready for the adults, full of Cameron’s Coffee 1.75oz bags in your favorite blend or flavor.

Try Something New

Hide candy or other treats around the house and yard for your kids. Then create a scavenger hunt for them to find it all, and write clues that lead them to the hiding spots!
