Ok sure, this may not be a normal Halloween. According to CDC guidelines, trick or treating may not be in the cards for many of us, and our typical Halloween parades and parties will take place via Zoom this year. (Make sure you attend ours!) But if we know our community of queer dads as well as we think we do, no pandemic is going to get in the way of an opportunity to turn a major Halloween look or two.
Another reason to join in the festivities this year — our annual Halloween family costume contest is still a GO this year! Check out this page for official instructions. Need some inspiration to get the creative juices flowing? Check out 30 of our favorite family costumes from last year's competition! And remember: go big or gourd home.
