Halloween is popular event in the social calendar and an opportunity to be outdoors and celebrate with neighbours on the streets.

Most of 2020 has been altered by COVID-19, and the spookiest night of the year is no different.

Whilst Halloween might look a little different this year, we have brainstormed some safe and creative ways to celebrate within your neighbourhood:

  • Dress up and meet your neighbours online for a costume parade
  • Host an online competition to create the spookiest looking food – check out Pinterest for ideas!
  • Decorate your driveway or footpath with spooky chalk drawings
  • Decorate the front of your house with Halloween decorations   
  • Create a scavenger hunt or play Halloween bingo within your neighbourhood
  • Create spooky spoon characters to add to your local ‘Spoonville’
  • Have a zoom spooky story telling session (borrow Halloween themed books from Monash Public Library Service)

To ensure a safe Halloween for everyone, remember to follow the current restrictions and health advice from the Victorian Government and:

  • practise good hygiene and regularly and thoroughly wash your hands
  • maintain physical distancing; keep at least 1.5 metres away from others
  • wear a face mask when leaving your home.

If you would like to organise a COVID-safe Halloween activity for your street, contact kate.bolaffi@monash.vic.gov.au to find out how Council’s Meet Your Street project can support your activity.
