3 Ways to Celebrate Halloween at an Apartment Community

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The spooky season is upon us. This means it’s time to get your outfits sorted and your community ready for All Hallows Eve – multifamily style!

Here are a few ways to unite your residents for a night of spooktacular fun:

Host a Scary Movie Night

From Hocus Pocus to Beetlejuice to Halloweentown, there are a plethora of classic flicks to enjoy this season. Find your coziest communal space and stock it with snacks, drinks, and maybe a few blankets to hide under. Then, dim the lights and enjoy the show! If your community is located in a warmer location, consider renting a projector and a screen for an outdoor theater. There’s nothing like enjoying a spooky flick in the crisp October air.

Trick-or-Treat Apartment Style

Is your community home to families with small children? Consider transforming the property into a haven for trick-or-treaters! First, be sure to decorate the halls and common areas for the big day to raise the spooky factor. Then, inspire your residents to have candy ready for their festive visitors with an email blast or onsite flyers. You can even create knob tags to pass out to residents who are participating, so trick-or-treaters know where to stop, and those who aren’t participating won’t be bothered. Then, don’t forget to stock up yourselves! You can post employees throughout the community with bowls of various candies.

If you feel your residents would rather hit the streets for treats, encourage families to travel as a group as a way to strengthen bonds between neighbors. Send out an email blast or post a meeting spot to an onsite discussion forum.

Host a Halloween Costume Contest

If you’d rather host a spooky adult-focused event, consider throwing a Halloween party with a costume contest! Spooky treats and sips are essential as well as some seasonal tunes (think Monster Mash). Don’t forget decor! Click here to find a few spectacularly spooky DIY ideas. Then, entice residents to go all out by hosting a contest. Common categories are scariest, funniest, most original, and best duo.
