Samhain/Halloween Potluck Ideas Needed

It’s likely that we will still be wearing masks on October 30 so we probably won’t be able to do the potluck indoors. I’m looking for suggestions for other activities - or do we want to have the potluck outside with enough room to distance?

Here is the event:

Bring your own pumpkin, pumpkin carving?
Costume contest?

Ooo that’s a really good idea!

Also I know that members just did a lifecasting class with pumpkins. Maybe people could paint them? Something like that?

I think we should do an outdoor potluck if the weather is good. There’s enough room outside that people can social distance as much as they are comfortable with in an outdoor environment.

I am leaning toward an outdoor potluck but I like both of Bri’s suggestions too! :grin:

Since bobbing for apples is unsanitary, what about a pumpkin piñata?

There’s nothing that says we can’t do both! We could have an outdoor potluck set up outside the ceramics door and then inside in the open work area have a pumpkin painting or carving station set up.

I like the way you think! This sounds so fun.

It seems to me if the big bay area in the new part of the space can be cleared and the doors left open there is enough room to consider it kind of outside as far as airflow and distancing room goes.
The event could be half in half out.

That’s the area I was thinking, but the eating portion would still need to be done outside since you would have to have your mask off to eat. To be inside still requires a mask. I was envisioning having the big doors open too (if it’s cool enough) so people could easily meander inside and out without much difficulty.
