Halloween for GrownupsFriday, October 26, 2012
Halloween is a lot of fun, but as an adult, you may be at a loss when it comes to activities. Yes, people have parties, of course, but not everyone knows someone throwing a party. So where else can you wear a costume?
Going out to dinner in costume can be a lot of fun, and you'll definitely generate some attention (unless, you know, everyone else is in costume too).
-The Grocery Store
My friends and I actually went to the grocery in costume a few years ago in search of pumpkin pie ice cream. It was, surprisingly, a hoot. The cashier was amused, and we had blast.
Considering a lot of Walmart patrons look like they're in costume anyway (People of Walmart, anyone?), this might actually be a great place to wear a costume.
Have kids? Get in the spirit and dress up too! Childless? Either try to convince an old lady with bad eyesight that you're just a tween who had an early growth spurt, or walk around in a costume for the fun of it.
-Local Halloween Events
A lot of cities host Halloween events. Mine, for example, is having a ZombieWalk/food drive. Maybe there's an event at your local park or zoo. Your local paper is a great place to check for these things!
You can always find a costume contest somewhere.
A lot of haunted houses/attractions are always looking for volunteers. More than likely, you'll get to wear a costume. Plus you get to scare people, which is always fun.
