Host a Virtual Halloween Party

Just because you can’t go out to celebrate with other ghosts and goblins doesn’t mean you can’t have fun! Host a virtual Halloween Party from your Riverside Park apartment in Reno

Here are some tips to host your own virtual Halloween party:

  1. Send an invitation that includes the time, details, and login information!
  2. Create a virtual party kit and if possible, deliver it a few days before the party. If your guests live out of town, create an online party kit with links to games, downloads, and Spooktacular recipes.
  3. Encourage your guests to create Halloween backdrops and to get dressed up in costumes!
  4. On the day of the party, send out an email reminder with the Zoom link! Use free programs like Canva to create spooky invitations!
