Save Halloween in the Hudson Valley
This is the best way to make sure that Halloween happens this year.
Over the last few days we have heard rumors that with the coronavirus still active, that Halloween might have to be canceled due to health concerns this year. Good news is that according to Hudson Valley Post, Halloween as of today, will go on as planned on Saturday October 31st.
Good news yes BUT, as we've learned over the last few months things can change, and with Halloween being over a month away we thought we need to make sure no matter what politicians decide to do, we have to have a plan to make sure the show goes on!
We asked Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan about the Halloween plan in Ulster County this year and he told us that they haven't worked on a plan just yet but when he joins us next Wednesday on the Wakin' Up with CJ and Jess Show he will share their plan.
We told Ryan that we have come up with the solution no matter what they come up with, he even helped us with the name of it. We are calling it "reverse trick or treating" and here is how it could work.
We set aside a four hour block, say 4-8 p.m. on Oct 31st and tell kids to get dressed up in their favorite costume and once they are dressed they head out to their front yards and stand there.
Us parent then drive around our neighborhoods and throw candy out the window of our cars at the kids that are standing outside. Kids can then collect it all and enjoy! We tried to convince Pat Ryan to sign an executive order to make it happen and he told us he would work on it...LOL!
After sharing our idea it was pointed out to us that the only issue would be, who watches the kids while parents are driving around? Sorry folks LOGIC has never been our strong suit! Let's hope that it doesn't come to having to use our idea and kids can safely trick or treat this year.
