5 Ways To Celebrate Halloween Without Making 2020 Any Scarier

It’s just about time for Halloween again, even though if we’re honest, nothing could possibly be scarier than the entirety of 2020.

Which is exactly why we’re keeping it light this year — think Casper The Friendly Ghost, not The Shining. With that vibe in mind, we’ve rounded up some of the best ways to have a bit of fun with Halloween this year.

#1 $10 pet costumes from Big W

The number one option for me, even though I don’t have a pet, is the $10 range of Halloween pet wear that Big W has dropped. Buy here.

#2 Dias de los Muertos at El Camino Cantina

Good food, special margarita flavours, loud music, colourful costumes and elaborately face-painted staff — honestly need I say any more? They’ll be celebrating from October 20 until November 7. Book here.

#3 Halloween Krispy Kremes

Krispy Kreme will be launching three limited-edition Halloween themed doughnuts, available on October 20 from select stores and 7-Elevens.

#4 Halloscream at Luna Park, Sydney

On select dates from October 23 to November 1, the infamous Halloscream is back with brand-new scare mazes, a lonely doll island, roaming zombies and more. Book here.

#5 DIY your own spooky recipes

Whether you like Halloween or not, the decorations are pretty fun. Mayvers (who make the best peanut butter, IMO), have some super cute spooky snack recipes here.
