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.
