This year is a weird one when it comes to event and activity planning. Christmas and New Year’s falls on Sunday, but Halloween also falls on an odd day as it is on a Monday. Many, surrounding area churches that usually have events have not planned for Halloween this year, so it’s difficult to offer alternatives. But our church has planned a costume board game night the weekend before Halloween on 10/28. Please RSVP by 10/23 (10/25 at the latest!)
Whether or not you celebrate Halloween, try to redeem the holiday, or choose not to participate in it at all, it is still part of our mainstream culture here in the west. Our post on what we believe about Halloween would be a great five minute read, but this post is more about some ways your family could participate in kid friendly activities for this time of the year.
Bellevue.com’s website has a full list of adult and family activities that you can browse, but here are a couple that we were able to filter and recommend for your consideration:
- Spookfest @ South Bellevue Community Center
- Kid Friendly Halloween Events via Red Tricycle
And, as always, please have a fun and safe Halloween if you are participating. Parents would do well to check out the CDC’s recommendations for Halloween preparedness.
