Here’s How to Safely Celebrate Halloween in Orange County This Year

  |     |   Things to Do

For those living in an Irvine apartment, it may seem like there won't be much Halloween this year. And while there are some differences between 2020 and years past, there are still plenty of opportunities for celebrating.

How to Enjoy Halloween In Orange County While Staying Safe

Enter a Drive-Thru Parade and Costume Contest

Cars have been proving to be the perfect tool for creating a socially distanced bubble with your pod. The Anaheim Halloween parade has been re-imagined as a drive-thru event that caps off a month of Halloween-themed virtual variety shows.

Get Spooked from the Safety of Your Car

If there's no Halloween for you without a haunted house, consider this drive-thru experience. The Urban Legends Drive Thru Haunt offers spooks aplenty including interactive show zones and immersive light and sound experiences.

Pick Your Own Pumpkin

If you're thinking of carving a jack-o-lantern, it's all the more satisfying with a pumpkin you've plucked from the patch yourself. Tanaka Farms is the perfect place to go pumpkin picking as well as to take a wagon ride. The visits have been modified for the pandemic, with many precautions taken, including that you pre-register here.

Visit Irvine Regional Park

There is a different kind of pumpkin patch at Irvine Regional Park. And while families cannot enter the patch themselves to pick out a pumpkin, there are options for train and wagon rides to fully immerse in the holiday spirit. It's a good idea to arrive early, as there will be limited capacity because of COVID. Or skip the pumpkin patch and just enjoy a bike ride or long walk with your pod.

Unwind with a Halloween-Themed Cocktail

It's been a hard year, and this Halloween is on a Saturday night, making it the perfect time to unwind with a holiday cocktail. While the party might be smaller than usual, it's still worth taking the time to mix a special drink to mark the occasion. Here's a guide to get you started.

Whether you head out into Orange County for safe celebrating, or prefer to stay at home this Halloween, there is plenty to do to enjoy the holiday. But it is made all the more enjoyable when you have an Irvine apartment you love, such as those at Main Street Village. Offering first class amenities like three different pools (wading, Junior Olympic and resort style) in addition to two hot tubs, lounges, a Zen garden and much more, Main Street Village is the perfect place to find tranquility in a hectic year.
