Well,,, this will be an interesting Holloweenie fest this year..
My daughter has decided to not take the kiddos into town to go Trick-or-treating...
We live out in the outskirts of town, mostly farm and Ag-land so kids can't go knocking on doors like in the City.. they would be exhausted after the 2nd or 3rd farm... lol!
So the small Dairy just up the road is going to have the barn set up with hay bales, scare crows, some craft activities and of course music.. and we are all going to pot-luck it,, Pot luck eats and Pot luck treats...
All the candies will be placed in several pumpkins and cauldrons and near the end of the gathering the kids will get to grab a handful of candy from each pumpkin/cauldron...

How do you plan to have fun on Boofest night?

(from Jean to me)

(from me to Jean)...
-0- calories and lots of fun!

What a great idea! We are trying to decide if we should even get a costume for my 10 year old. He said he needs one to go to grammy's - she lives in walking distance.
Hope you have a bootiful time!

Grace, lucky you for this cool option for BooFest this year!! Our neighborhood is full of decorated yards and we have quite a few children. I plan on dressing up in my usual Winnie the Witch outfit and dropping candy in each container. I found this adorable Halloween mask at CVS and will wear that over my regular surgical style one. If no kids show up, guess hubby and I will enjoy the treats. I found a bag of mini candy bars in several varieties we like incase there are no takers from the neighborhood. Love those cute sewing goodies you got and gave too! I also love the phrase, BooFest! that is new to me but such a fun expression.

Oh, what FUN!!! It seems as though no one here is trick-or-treating, the farms aren't celebrating... it's kind of a bummer. There is a new outbreak of Covid here, so people are being really cautious. The only one I know celebrating is my foster granddaughter. They're going to do something fun for the kids in one of her classes.

Me? I've hidden candy in pumpkin jars I've collected over the years - they're all over the house. Trying to get a treat or two before my hubby finds them and leaves me nothing but tricks! LOL! He has a TERRIBLE sweet tooth!!! Whenever he discovers a little candy cache, he just giggles!

Hugs -

Grace, they are canceling our Halloween this year too. We were planning on heading to the city as well because the houses are so far apart here. The city decided to set up designated areas in our local fair grounds and have the towns businesses hand out treats for the kids as they drive by. So we will take the kids on a drive by Halloween this year. Itís so hard to explain to littles why they canít do what they normal do. Breaks my heart. Iím just glad they are trying to find ways to still let them do something.

It is a shame that this years 'sugar overload' will be cancelled or to a minimum this year... but it could be worse... In Ireland, Checz Republic, Germany and many of the Euro Nations are on the upswing for COVID-19 and going back into tighter lockdown,
I checked with my family in Germany,, Bars and hair saloons are being closed down again and in Heilbronn they are setting a 11pm curfew..
In Ireland, where they also celebrate a type of Halloween,, they are going back into strict COVID rules and lock downs..
Hopefully we won't have to go back to stricter lock down rules... but if so,, families can create alternative at home fun activities for their children..
Krista,, I think the 'Drive-by' is a great idea.... then families can drive around and look at Boofest decorated homes/yards.
Nini,, I hide chocolate,(in my sewing room), but I make sure to buy some, the kind my DH likes,, and leave those in the candy bowel... he is a caramel fan,, me, not so much... I am a dark chocolate & nut luver...
