Travel RVing is looking just a little ahead to the autumn season. Colorful foliage and cooler temperatures make fall a favorite time for RVers to hit the road. However, with Halloween just around the corner, some RVers might imagine that they could miss out on a genuine Halloween experience. But these are only RVers who have not yet ventured out to celebrate “All Hallows Eve” on the road.
Celebrating Halloween has come to be a favorite with adults as well as children all over the country. Here come the costumes, haunted houses, spooky stories, ghost hunters, and Halloween parties galore. Afraid you will miss the trick-or-treaters? No way. RV parks and campgrounds everywhere offer special activities for campers. Many are extremely elaborate and include decorations, costumes, hayrides and all sorts of games for the young’uns. Halloween has become the busiest time of year for RV parks and campgrounds.
Halloween is the ideal time for decorating. Do RVers decorate their motorhomes, travel trailers, 5th wheelers, etc., when on-the-go? You betcha’, they do! Some RVers book the park or campground for a week or more before Halloween so they can decorate. And decorate, they do! Believe it or not, some folks pull trailers packed full of decorations. Life-sized coffins, hay bales, tombstones, spider webs, jack-o-lanterns, ghosts and goblins lie in wait everywhere. Now these are the Halloween go-all-outers. A lot of RVers like to keep up their own decorating traditions, but lack the space to carry or room to set up decorations like they did in their stick homes. But, never fear, they learn to think on a smaller scale and let their creativity run wild. And, if you don’t have room to bring decorations with you, you can always pick up a few inexpensive ones at craft stores, party stores, or discount stores.
Many RVers host Halloween parties of their own. Perhaps a potluck supper or costume party is to your liking. Search the internet and you can find ghoulish recipes for Halloween fare. But, take this as a warning– some of the “treats” that you will see in your search have been created by somewhat disturbed people. Your boo-ffet could consist of melon brains, rats baked in blood, severed finger cookies, eyeball eggs, and flesh ‘n blood slushies just to name a few. Mmmm…
Whether you are looking for some Halloween fun for the whole family to enjoy, or you are a single RVer out for some adventure and camaraderie, RVing to a Halloween Happening should be just the ticket for you. Travel RVing wishes you a spook-tacular Halloween.
