Spooky Candies and Costume Wave Parade with Covid-19 in Mind

Fig 01- The Halloween festival sign.


The invitation signs to celebrate Halloween are already out on the roads. The stores fill up with many varieties of candies, cookies, and costumes.


A week away to the spooky night.


Trick-or treat hours for the City of Baton Rouge and East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana are set for 6.00 pm to 8.00 pm, on Saturday, October 31, 2020.


Sharon Weston Broome, the Mayor of Baton Rouge just give a sign about this festivities.


She mentioned to all residents to use good judgment in our Halloween preparations, and keep our community safe and healthy this Halloween.


Here recommendations for safe holiday festivities on CDC website https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/holidays.html#halloween


Fig 02- Spooky KitKats and candies


I just got Treat Map app. It seems our neighborhood will do traditional events, but we are still thinking about how to do the best festivities when virus in mind, and how we provide the treat safely bagged and the kids.


Fig 03- Scary candies.


Many ideas came up in discussions:

- The parties will be in the open air.

- Everyone keep their distance and wear face covering.

- Following the the Treat Map for trick or treat and the costume wave parade.

- Some haunted houses will be put the black and orange balloons as a sign.

- Candies will be in individual safe bags for trick-or-treaters. 


Fig 04- Spooky Oreo designs.


Some residents will be leave the candies in the drive way or carport, either on the table, in the Garden Candy, or in the Candy Tree.


Don't be greedy, and sweep all candies for yourself. Be aware! The Witch are watching for the Greedy!


Keeping the distance, some residents will be passing candies by a long pole, a pool net, or rackets.


We, in this neighborhood, want everyone safe but still able to enjoy the holiday and festivities.


Happy Halloween, Enjoy the Spooky Night, and be safe!

  10. I think those measures are great, that way the kids can enjoy in a safer way. I am thinking too of ways to give treats without risks, but I'm not taking my daughter to trick or treat.

  14. Until last year, ghosts and witches were friendly and unreal to us. Today the ghost of covid19 is real and haunts us, we do not know where and what we have to take care of

  15. I don't think people in our area will be distributing candies this year. Too risky.

  16. Great, Evi. Sometime I will enjoy the Halloween party in your city. Unfortunately in Argentina where I live there is no celebration, there is no such tradition. A shame really. I would love to.

    Hugs and more hugs each time bigger.

  17. Evi, Hallowe'en has be cancelled for us Scottish. The kids aren't allowed to go out and no parties either. We can celebrate in our own home with the people living with us, but nothing else! Looking like Scotland will do the same for Christmas too :-O

  40. Halloween is becoming a scary holiday just because of the danger involved with it. Not long ago, there were fears of mischief done to the candy and the hospitals were x-raying candy if you wanted for pins! Now we have other concerns. Thanks for the interesting post!

  41. Teniendo cuidado, podemos disfrutar de Halloween, aunque sea con otros planes!

  47. Buon Halloween a voi che sentite tantissimo questa festa.
    Quì in Italia l'abbiamo importata e i bambini passano anche da noi di casa in casa a chiedere "dolcetto o scherzetto"?
    Anche da noi le mamme si sono organizzate, manderanno i bambini ma non potranno entrare nelle case, i dolci saranno fuori a loro disposizione.
    Noi per esempio abbiamo fatto tanti pacchettini trasparenti.

  54. Lo importante es, que a pesar de las medidas de seguridad por contagio, los niños se hallan divertido mucho y hayan conseguido asustar a otras personas, que eso es con lo que más disfrutan.
    Ahí por lo menos estáis disfrutando de estas fiestas aunque sea con limitaciones, porque aquí se han suspendido todas las fiestas y celebraciones.
    Gracias por informarnos de esta fiesta tan típicamente americana, y que en España cada vez se está celebrando en más ciudades.
    Que tengas una buena semana, estimda amiga.
