Halloween, the holiday where scariness abounds, and people have the potential to transform into hideous monsters, aliens, other forms and go around to strange houses demanding sugary food. Only this year, the scariest thing about Halloween is the current pandemic. It may not be safe to congregate in large groups, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t celebrate Halloween in Oakland, California, especially at home at 777 Broadway.
How To Decorate Your Apartment
First things first, if you have a balcony with your apartment, that’s the most visible thing that people will see. Decorate the railings with streamers, fake cobwebs, and other decorations, taking care to secure them, so they don’t come loose and impact traffic. A flying ghoul at someone’s home is one thing; having one come towards you when you’re driving is quite another.
How To Celebrate At Home
Due to the pandemic, it’s far safer to celebrate Halloween in Oakland, California at home. That doesn’t mean you can’t have a small party for yourself and your immediate family or roommates. Find some spooky music, change the lights to the appropriately festive colors and light level and have fun.
If you want to get into the Halloween spirit with non-alcoholic drinks there are so many out there. You could try the Ocean Blue Goblet, which is a mix of lemon-lime soda, sour mix, and Torani Blue Raspberry Syrup. You put the ingredients into a glass or a goblet and you place a couple gummy or marshmallow sharks inside the glass.
