As someone who likes spooky things, candy and an excuse to dress up, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.

While I’m somewhat tempted to just hang out at home and watch scary movies this year, there are plenty of fun options for kids to enjoy the holiday in a safe way amid the pandemic, many of them put on by local businesses. Halloween is the perfect opportunity to wear a costume that incorporates masks in a cute way!
