So given that it’s mid-October and still plenty warm in the beau­ti­ful North­west, you may be keep­ing your pool open a bit longer than usual this fall. Or, maybe you’ve got a heated pool and you and your fam­ily are able to swim year-round. Either way, if host­ing a Hal­loween pool party is on your sched­ule, con­sider mov­ing it pool­side. Here are some ideas to get your pool-parties wheels turning.


Float­ing, Glow­ing Pumpkins. 

Carve small pump­kins and place small can­dles inside—they are a cool way to light up the dark night around the pool and float­ing in the pool! Plas­tic pump­kins from craft stores will also work.


A Blood-Red Pool

For the very ghoul­ish, check out red Party Pool dye as an option. It’s non-toxic and non-staining—and the color fil­ters out in 3–5 days… (Lots of other fun col­ors are avail­able, too!)


Eerie Fog
The North­west is great at fog, but with all the blue-sky, dry weather of late, it may well be clear on Hal­loween. Use dry ice to cre­ate that spooky foggy atmos­phere. Warn­ing: Dry ice can burn the skin. Don’t let any­one swim if you have dry ice in the pool.


Spooky Sounds

You def­i­nitely don’t want to have “Mon­ster Mash” on repeat, but some scary sound effects can be fun. There’s a lot of sounds and music avail­able for down­load, or pick up an inex­pen­sive Hal­loween CD at the party store. This is super-fun if you have a good pool­side sound sys­tem.


Happy Hal­loween!
