My neighbor with two young sons sent out an email to the people on our street asking if it would be okay to trick-or-treat, all of it socially distanced of course. I was an immediate yes. I see how hungry we all are for contact and a semblance of recreating how it was last year and will be next year.
This comes from my local community center.
“We hope you will join us on October 30th, from 3-6:30pm for our first ever, SPOOKY STREET!
“The plan is to have families drive our ‘Spooky Street’ where businesses will decorate their (socially distant) parking space (or trunk) in fun and engaging ways. Participants will remain in their cars, so this year requires extra creativity!
“At the end of the ‘street’ they will be given a Boo! bag filled will treats, activities and surprises. We are limiting participation to 12 cars every 25 mins, for a total of 80 cars.
“Advanced reservations will be required.”
I’ve decorated more than usual, and I see my neighbors out decorating. We are creatures of creativity, and like carved pumpkins, our light is shining through.
