Well, Corgi Lovers, if 2020 wasn’t scary enough on its own, here comes Halloween. This year will be a little bit different, of course, but just because we’re in the midst of a global pandemic doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun! There are lots of things you can do this Halloween to have a screaming good time while still following the CDC’s guidelines. Here are some of our favorite ideas that will guarantee Halloween fun for you, your Corgi, and your whole spooky pack.
- Go to a pumpkin patch. Aside from photo ops galore, pumpkin patches these days also offer wagon rides, petting zoos, mazes, and food. One pumpkin patch in Southern California even offers a Hello Kitty-themed experience! Since pumpkin patches are outdoors, you can get some fresh air while keeping plenty of distance between you and other patch patrons. Many patches are also dog-friendly, but call ahead to make sure before bringing your well-behaved Corgi to the site.
- Drive through a haunted house. Since many indoor haunted houses are closed this year, ghosts and goblins had to improvise. You don’t expect them to rattle chains and pop out of closets when there’s no one around to frighten, do you? This new breed of haunted experience is one that chills and thrills while you stay safely in your car. Upon entering, you are guided from one hair-raising encounter to the next with special effects and live performances. Plan for you and your Corgi to stay in your car the whole time – and lock your doors!
- Plan a Halloween parade. One thing about a pandemic – there are plenty of masks to be had. Wear your COVID-compliant mask under any Halloween mask you choose and get your friends or neighbors together for an outdoor, socially distanced, Halloween Parade. Dress yourself and your Corgi in your Halloween best and show off your Halloween spirit to the delight of your neighborhood audience. End the event with a costume contest and cute prizes for the winners, like this adorable Dogavengers Piggy Bank.
- Tour the Halloween sights. Some neighborhoods go all-out decorating for Halloween, and this year is no different. Touring Halloween-themed houses is so popular that many neighborhoods actually publish maps of all the Halloween house landmarks. This Halloween-Decorated House info is specific to neighborhoods in Los Angeles, but a quick internet search will turn up the best places to see the sights near you. Pack up your Corgi and your favorite snacks and hit the road with this Dogavengers Corgi dashboard companion to make things extra festive!
- Throw a (small) Halloween-themed dinner party. Why not make Halloween extra scrumptious this year and build an entire dinner party around it? Your party can be held indoors or outdoors with decorations adorning your house or yard, and inspired Halloween tablescapes. Concoct a signature potion to drink, a scary-delicious Halloween menu, and dress for the occasion, of course. Remember to adhere to the COVID policies in your area with regards to number of people, household-combining, etc.
