Muscatine Living

Listen, if you’ve read this column for the last few years, you know that I am a big fan of Halloween. I have fond memories from my childhood, and have enjoyed watching my children create their own.

Halloween week has arrived, and there are a lot of things going on! From trunk or treats at Addington Place (taking place on Oct. 28 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.) to the Greater Muscatine Chamber of Commerce’s Central Middle School Haunted Halls (happening this Friday, Oct. 28 from 6 to 9 p.m.) and Muscatine Park and Recreations trunk-or-treat (returning on Sunday, Oct. 30 from 6 to 7 p.m. in the Soccer West parking lot (near the Soccer Complex) it’s time to get the kids (or grandkids) dressed up and make plans to be there! Listen, I probably left off a few other events, and for that, I apologize.

What’s exciting is that we have so many family-friendly options right here in Muscatine. Our kids have their costumes and are looking forward to going trick-or-treating on Halloween. I think we’ll have to go back to our old Spinning Wheel Court neighborhood since that’s one of the best places to trick-or-treat in Muscatine, and we’d get to see some former neighbors, a win-win for sure!

I’m personally looking forward to playing music at the Optimae client Halloween party on Thursday, and I cannot wait to see so many familiar faces there! I’d also be remiss if I didn’t invite you to stop by the Missipi Brew on Saturday, Oct. 29, for their Halloween Bash. Come dressed to impress in costume (for those 21 years and older, of course), and you could win big! I’ll be honest; I’m still trying to finalize which costume I will be going with for myself.

Have you watched any scary movies this month? Did you head to The Palms 10 movie theatre and see “Halloween Ends?” I wasn’t overly impressed with that movie, but I still enjoyed the experience of seeing it on the big screen! If anything, this week is the perfect time to revisit some of the all-time classic scary movies! My list includes; the original “Halloween” from 1978, the first “Scream” from 1996, and “The Birds” from 1963 (I think that traumatized me as a kid–I still think it’s scary!) and “Beetlejuice” (who doesn’t love that movie?) to name a few.

Maybe you’re waiting for Nov.1 to visit places like Hy-Vee to purchase all the discounted Halloween candy! Nothing wrong with that!

I hope you all have a fantastic week. Thank you for reading this column, and sharing your feedback with me. Happy Halloween!
