Usually, I’m getting ready to go to trunk or treats during the month, and trick or treating on Halloween night. Halloween is even on a Saturday this year.

I wanted to find some things we could do that are still safe to participate in.  We will be skipping trick or treating all together. I won’t even be handing…
