It’s Talloweek! Trick or Treat

That Was Then…

I would race home from school so my mom could put together some sort of costume for me then rush to meet my friends to go trick-or-treating Somehow, by the time I had my own kids, Halloween included much more; carving pumpkins, putting up decorations, more formal costumes, and, of course, trick-or-treating throughout our neighborhood, but not without a parent escort.

This is Now…

Halloween traditions in college are, well, a far cry from the pumpkin carving, candy apple making gatherings we had in our driveway before the kids started their trick-or-treating. Many places, including frats, will have parties – all week. Halloween week, I’m not going to lie, gives a whole new meaning to the BOO in Booze. Keep in mind FSU is not the only college in town either. Due to unfortunate events in the past though, there will surely be a watchful eye on our students, which is actually a good thing.

It may not be a bad idea to remind your students of all the nice parts of Halloween and to keep their good judgment about them. A hint to be sure they have all their work done before they go out is wise too. Be sure they are familiar with the Night Nole and never ride alone. The bus stops at all the prime locations. Uber will be at a premium.

On a Lighter Note….

  • FSU’s Circus, which is on our bucket list of things to experience at least once while at FSU, puts on a Halloween themed show.
  • Terror of Tallahassee– 1408 Brandford Road – Oct 3rd – Oct 31st. $18 – $28. Even scarier than HHN with extreme frights. There will be reduced tickets available and everyone must be wearing a face mask in order to attend and must maintain a social distance from other parties by at least 6 feet.
  • Monster Mash Dash. 5K. This year will be a Virtual Run but proceeds go to Make A Wish Foundation and you receive great amenities.
  • Tallahassee Heights UMC Pumpkin Patch. City’s original pumpkin patch with some changes to follow current safety guidelines. 3004 Mahan Drive.
  • Halloween Howl at Tallahassee Museum. 3945 Museum Dr, Tallahassee, FL 32310. Friday, October 23rd – 24th 6 pm – 10 pm
  • Planetarium Spooky Secrets of the Stars, Emerald Coast Science Center. 31 Memorial Pkwy SW, Fort Walton Beach, FL 32548. Thursday, October 29th at 5 pm. Due to social distancing, space is limited to 15 patrons at a time. Purchasing tickets in advance is highly recommended.
