It’s finally that time of the year where you get to pull out your costumes and celebrate the spooky traditions of Halloween! Granted it might be a little different again this year, we’ve got a guide on Celebrating Halloween in Singapore in 2021! Keep reading to find out how to put your costumes to use!😌
1. Set Up a Movie Marathon
This Halloween, watch every scary movie you can think of, by setting up a spooky movie marathon with your friends. Buy an assortment of Halloween-themed snacks and fun party goods, and create a movie playlist! It’s truly the perfect way to celebrate the festive spooky night. You can also book All to Gather or Here.SG, both where you can bring your own stuff to decorate the room and watch movies on projectors. And, get some perfect pictures for you to cherish (and post, of course!).

2. Do a Virtual Halloween Quiz
Download some funky backgrounds for zoom, dress your scariest and do a quiz night with your friends! Choose from Halloween specific topics or go with general knowledge. Chip in $10 each and PayLah! the total to the winner of the quiz. You can make the quiz more fun by getting some takeout and eating your meal together, virtually.
Why not try quizzes and games like Halloween-Themed bingo, or create a game on Kahoot? You can also try out some really cool and free virtual escape rooms, which require lots of teamwork but have become a top fad especially with lockdowns!
3. Organise a Scavenger Hunt
Create your own scavenger hunt! Depending on how creative you are feeling, you can turn it into a haunted house with lots of DIY decor and more. Will anyone even make it through the whole scary pathway? If you need room to do the hunt, why not book out Hyperspace @ Lavender? With 3000sqm of room, you can set up the trickiest hunt with jumpscares and terror at every turn. Get everyone to attend in costume and build the spookiest map in Singapore!

4. Haunted Driving
If you have a car, take a ride down the most haunted roads in Singapore. Go through the Devil’s Bend on Upper Thomson Road known for steep turns and many ghost sightings, and then drive by Punggol Road. Another stop you should make for the full experience is South Buona Vista Road. Check out the map below to see the spots!
5. Do a Decoration Competition
Feeling competitive? Go all out with your decor and compete with your friends for the best decorated Halloween house! If you’re limited by space, do a room decorating competition and have a judge in the group decide a winner. Then, move on to one of the above activities. Check out Pinterest for the coolest inspiration!
While the change in traditions is understandably frustrating, we hope that our guide helps you find alternative and enjoyable ways to celebrate Halloween in Singapore this year the right way!
