Halloween 2020 is something I’ve looked forward to more than in years past. It’s not because we’ll be doing all the same traditional things: far from it. However, it is a promise we still can make many good memories this year. As we get used to the new normal being the new normal, our Lake County community has once again risen to the challenge to make this Halloween a good one. If you haven’t made plans, no worries. Check out The Bloom’s Big Calendar, and you will find more than enough COVID-safe things to do. If you can’t wait until the evening for the fun to get going, begin your day in Middletown, where the festivities start at noon! From there, you have the entire county offering trunk or treats, scary drives, and corn mazes. And don’t forget the Drive-in in Lakeport. This Halloween they’re showing the Rocky Horror Picture Show, always a fun time. In the meantime, The Bloom has some great reads this week: we’ve got short fiction from Jennifer Mills Kerr, poetry from Marilyn Hung, and one more installment of the history of the Prather Family and Loch Lomond. So sit back, relax, and take a few minutes to enjoy The Bloom. As always, please be safe, and don’t forget to set your clock back one hour Saturday night so that you can enjoy some extra sleep Sunday morning.
It’s not too early to start planning your Halloween adventure! With so many drive-throughs this year, it is quite possible to meander around the entire county, making 2020 a fun and memorable Halloween for the family. Check out The Bloom’s Calendars to find out how many stops you can make in an evening. If you don’t have kids and still want to have some fun, Haunted Lake County’s Scare to Save the Fair is a worthy cause and fun for all ages. And while you’re there, check out Lakeport’s Pumpkin Decorating Contest. If staying at home is more your style and you still want to get into the spirit of things, Kelseyville is hosting an online pumpkin decorating competition with prizes! So, don’t despair; this year’s Halloween can be one of your favorites. Until then, take a minute to read more of David’s history of Loch Lomond and catch up on some of the things happening in our community. Enjoy this beautiful fall weekend, and be sure to follow all health guidelines as you make your plans.

Due to COVID-19 and social distancing guidelines it is crucial that an organized event be put together to offer our community a safe place to go trick or treating.
The coronavirus pandemic may have canceled the Pumpkin & Dia de los Muertos Festival, but local residents and businesses are encouraged to take the celebration from downtown Lakeport to the lawns and storefronts. The Lakeport Main Street Association (LMSA) is hosting a Pumpkin and Dia de los Muertos yard decoration display contest. Residence winners will be declared in the categories of Pumpkin/Halloween-Fall seasonal theme and Dia de los Muertos “Day of the Dead” theme.
