A Safe & Spooky Halloween
Many parents are wondering how Covid19 is going to affect their Halloween plans this year. Pensacola and other surrounding cities may have lifted mask mandates and opened businesses, but that doesn't necessarily mean everyone is comfortable going door to door on All Hallows Eve. Trick or treating aside, the coronavirus doesn't have to kill your spooky season vibes. Here are some fun Halloween staples that are still available and safe for the whole family.
Pumpkin Patches & Corn Mazes
Although it might not be sweater weather yet, some fun fall and Halloween activities are picking out pumpkins, going on a hay ride, or getting lost in a corn maze. Here are some local farms that are open for the season:
Trunk or Treating
To give the kids the feeling of traditional trick or treating with a bit more social distancing involved, trunk or treating is great option. Many local businesses and churches are offering trunk or treating while following CDC guidelines like wearing masks and/or gloves, staying at least 6 feet apart, and offering individual goodies for each child in lieu of a communal bowl of candy.
Local businesses and organizations are aiming to offer more safe options for the community this year. From super heroes in the streets to trick or treating in the Gulf Breeze Zoo, there is plenty of Halloween fun to choose from!
