Halloween 2021: Fun From a Distance

Depending on where you live, Halloween might look a little different this year and may include celebrations like outdoor festivals, physically-distanced trick-or-treating or more local celebrations. Here are some fun and easy ways to make sure Halloween 2021 is safe and memorable for everyone!

Reverse Trick-or-Treating

Drop off treats on your neighbors’ doorsteps instead of collecting treats from them to share the Halloween spirit in a safe and considerate way.

Just Take One

Expecting trick-or-treaters this year? Put out a bowl of candy and encourage one piece each. Don’t get caught on the doorbell camera taking more than one!

Pack It Up

Make variety treat bags for safe, easy, socially-distanced pickup during trick-or-treating. These can be placed on a bowl, strung from festive lights or attached to the tree in the yard.

Create Distance

Put a table between the person handing out candy and the trick-or-treaters to help maintain adequate social distance.

Get Crafty!

Showcase Halloween craft projects made with candy on front porches throughout the neighborhood.

Halloween on Parade

Organize a costume parade through the neighborhood, and keep the candy stashed at home to enjoy after the parade.


Host a trunk-or-treat event in an open air space, where you can abide by social distancing standards.

Leave Your Neighbors A Spooky Surprise

Drop treats on your neighbor’s doorstep, then ring the doorbell and run away. Don’t forget to include a note letting your neighbor know it’s from you!
