Halloween is a holiday that offers a lot to an RVer. You may love to decorate your RV in the spirit of Halloween, throw the grandest Halloween bash in the RV park, or even have young ones with you who want to go trick or treating. No matter your Halloween plans on the road, here are some tips and ideas sure to make the spookiest holiday of the year a resounding hit among your family, friends, and neighbors!
1. Decorate Your RV
The simplest way to celebrate Halloween is by decorating your RV. This can range from a simple plug-in Jack-o-Lantern and some window decals to extravagant displays of cobwebs, gravestones, animatronic witches, and hanging skeletons. You can even theme your entire RV inside and out — perhaps an Egyptian mummy’s tomb, a haunted house, or a cemetery. If you have any trick or treaters come along, the more effort you put in the more you’ll delight.
2. Host Your Own Monster Mash
Try hosting a Halloween-themed party this year. Halloween is a classic reason to throw a party, and the addition of costumes makes Halloween parties some of the best. Halloween parties work great if you’re staying at a Halloween park or campground. Go around and meet your neighbors in advance and let them know that you’re throwing a party. Make sure they know which RV is yours and try to get some idea of how many are likely to show. Plan to make party platters and dishes to feed your guests, or suggest a pot-luck style gathering where your guests contribute snacks and drinks. Starting earlier in the evening when the sun is still out is best, but make sure you have adequate outdoor lighting available for when it starts to get dark. Don’t forget the spooky music!
3. Take Your Young Ghouls and Goblins Out Trick or Treating
If you have your kids or grandkids with you, they’ll probably want to go trick or treating, even if you’re on the road. You can generally count on your RV park neighbors to participate in Halloween trick or treating, and it should be fairly obvious which of your neighbors are open for visitors. If their outside lights are out and no one is sitting out with a bowl of candy, they probably wish to be left alone. If the RV park you’re staying out seems relatively quiet, you can always ask a local where the best neighborhoods for trick or treating are in nearby towns or cities.
