Carving a pumpkin is fun for everyone in the family.

There comes a time when you become a bit too old for trick or treating, so what could you do? Well, you can still have fun during Halloween even though you can’t go out. These are some of the things you can do during Halloween.

The first thing you can do is decorate your house for Halloween. You could use fake spiderwebs, skeletons or ghosts. Fake blood and lighting could also help out with the spookiness. But if you don’t want your house to be scary you can use small or big blow-ups characters and pumpkins so smaller kids aren’t that afraid. Party City and Spirit Halloween is a good place to get decorations. 

If you don’t want to take time to decorate your house, you could have a costume party with your friends, family or classmates. Dress up in different costumes and plan out activities for your guests to do so they have fun. If you are looking for some costumes, Party City and Spirit Halloween are good places to get some costumes.

The Town of Cary has some Halloween events that you can go to. Some of the events are a Pumpkin Flotilla at Bond Park boathouse  Oct. 29 4-7 p.m. for all ages, Pumpkin Carving at the old town of Cary library site on the Oct. 30 at 2-8 p.m. for all ages and spooky stories at Page-Walker which is for kids 12 and up during Oct. 30th 6:30 and 7:45 p.m.
