Limited Invite Party

Select a small group of your closest friends and plan an unforgettable get together under the light of the stars! Follow the small gathering guidelines in your neck of the woods and have some fun with ghost stories, tarot cards or the Ouija board!

Zoom Parties

Hop on your Nextdoor App and coordinate a neighborhood Zoom party complete with games, scary stories and a costume contest. Goodie bags and candy buckets can be dropped off on doorsteps in advance, or porch pickups can be arranged from one location!

Netflix Teleparty

Netflix will be offering up some Halloween gems to choose from this season. Have you seen Hubie Halloween yet? Adam Sandler doesn’t disappoint! Check out the free Netflix extension that lets you start, stop and pause a movie so you can watch it with friends or family – remotely!

Porch Pics

Commemorate this memorable Halloweekend with some epic porch pics! Grab your selfie-stick, gear up and get out there for some #halloweenporchpics. Don’t forget to show off your Halloween houses, pet costumes and favorite little monsters!

Dress for Dinner

Don’t just wear the costume – BE the costume! Plan a Halloween feast for your fam with one simple rule… everyone must stay in costume AND in character for the entire meal! Give each participant some time to come up with an accent and a backstory before the night begins – then savor the laughter and the memories!

Masquerade Moves

Inspiration abounds when it comes to making a like-worthy TikTok. Show off your epic dance moves for the official Halloween dance challenge! Just grab a costume, your favorite candy and don’t just stand there… bust a move!

Scavenger Hunt House

Find inspiration in Halloween movies, music and more! Create different theme rooms throughout the house and send the kids on a scavenger hunt for fun swag. Hide candy, toys and prizes or even make some gift certificates to stay up late, choose the movie or eat an extra piece of candy. Keep the big kids engaged by including QR codes and pic challenges!

Halloween Karaoke

Whether you’re pulling off a tribute to Thriller or takin’ it back to the old school with some Monster Mash, a Halloween hit list for a night of Karaoke is sure to bring the house down. Up the ante with awards for the best impersonation, funniest choreography or the greatest overall show-stopper!

Halloween Piñata

Here’s a fun way for the kids to get candy safely! Add some Halloween tunes and turn your evening into a family game night with the piñata as the grand finale!

Virtual Mystery Party

Ever cracked a murder case? Here’s your chance. Go all-out with an online murder mystery party! Invite your friends and fam to don costumes and join in the fun. Design your own party or sign up for one online.

Creature Feature

Celebrate your way with a late-night creature feature! Curate a must-see movie list of your top 3 favorites and pull an all-nighter. After all, it’s Halloweekend! (Just don’t forget the candy!)

Trick or Treat Drive By

Take a ride on over to visit friends and fam in costume! Honk, text or shout upon arrival and deliver some treats or tricks in costume to your fave folks!

Trick-or-Treat in Reverse

Get the kids all decked out in their costume of choice and hang out with them in the front yard as neighbors walk or drive by and deliver candy!

Costume HalloWeek

Fully embrace your inner character and dress up to show your Halloween spirit throughout the entire week leading up to the BIG night! Friends and family will have a blast running errands, walking the dog or joining a Zoom meeting … in costume!

Neighborhood Candy Hunt

Gather the kids to seek out strategically-placed stashes of sweets! With a trick-or-treat treasure map or without, just make sure to lay the ground rules to keep your fam and friends safe.

Neighborhood Pub Crawl

For all the late-night shenanigan seekers who are over the moon excited about some much deserved socialization! Set up driveway stations with Halloween libations and reconnect with your neighborhood pals!

Themed Drive-In

Let’s Do the Time Warp Again: Set up an epic themed drive-in movie complete with all the props and accessories for The Rocky Horror Picture Show event of a lifetime!

Candy Chute

Better than a game of Chutes and Ladders, the ultra creative Candy Chute was a media favorite last year and for good reason! Play it safe and have some fun with your very own candy delivery system. Let your creativity run wild this Halloweekend and theme it out!

Yeet the Treats

What’s a YEET? This trendy new term means to throw (something) forcefully in a specified direction. So get the neighborhood on board to Yeet the Treats! Relive the good old days of parade floats throwing candy to kids … only this time, homeowners can yeet candy from 6 feet away as costumed kids safely traverse the sidewalks.

Drive Up Trick or Treat

Neighbors set up curbside shop as parents drive up with their favorite costumed characters to scoop up the sweets and treats!

Neighborhood Parade

Organize a neighborhood costume parade where the route is predetermined and marked to maintain safe distances between participants. Extra safety precautions can include sanitize stations, yellow caution tape, 6ft sidewalk stickers/tape, age group signs and more!

Family pet parade

Talk about a new tradition – take to the streets with your furry friends and take part in a social distancing pet parade! Dog treats go to the best costume!

Fairytale Forest

Plan a path through neighboring woods or a park and light it up with glow sticks, flashlights and more! Line the trail with Halloween décor, props, candy and surprises. Trees can be tied with ribbons to help follow social distance guidelines!

Face Mask Party

Order up a bunch of plain face masks and have yourself a paint party! Decorate, doodle and bedazzle your way to some snazzy new face masks to wear this fall.

Boo Bags

Here’s a fun filled alternative to traditional trick or treating! Fill a Boo Bag with fun treats and deliver anonymously to someone’s doorstep! Your friends, fam and neighbors can pass it forward by creating a Boo Bag for someone else.
