Spirits may be down after a tough lockdown period, but get rid of your resting witch face, goblin up some candy and have some skelefun this weekend because it's going to be a fangtastic Halloween!
Sunday, October 31 is just around the corner, so here are some tips and treat ideas to make this Halloween a spooktacular one.
Halloween is all about having fun, but there are still some COVID-safe ways of ensuring you have the best day ever.
NSW Health's Jeremy McAnulty suggested people to provide closed packaging for treats and instead of communal lolly bowls and to consider other ways of distributing treats like along the front fence or hidden in the front yard.
"You should also try to keep it local and put effort into decorating the front yard and staying in your neighbourhood rather than travelling to well-known 'treat streets' frequented by many people," Mr McAnulty said.
Celebrations should also be kept outside and people are reminded to not share costume face masks and to practice good hygiene.
