This year's Halloween colors are orange and GREEN
Get on your eco-duds, then head to Ecohaus's Green Halloween party for some healthy Halloween ideas, hands-on activities and healthy snacks. Kids will get to meet "insulation man," who I imagine dates "duct girl." Prizes will be awarded for the most eco-friendly costumes. Sat., Oct. 18, noon-3 p.m., at Ecohaus, 4121 First Ave. S. Free.
Also, if you are looking for more green party ideas, you should pick up the book Simply Green Parties by Danny Seo, author of Simply Green Giving. I found it at Capers a year ago and it helped me plan our house warming party after moving into our Built Green Certified townhome in High Point in 2007. Nothing specific for Halloween, per se, but there are some AWEsome ideas in this book, great how-to's, and some really nice photographs. ADDED on 10/31: See this video of how Danny Seo green's up Halloween.
On the scary Halloween night, you'll probably find us and my little Italian greyhound, Sophia (sporting her orange jack-o-lantern sweatshirt, complete with green stem on the hood) at Skeleton Theater on October 31st. We've gone for the past two years they have done this, and they say this year it will be one 20 minute show instead of clips. You should check it out if you are in the area!! It is pretty amazing what a couple of guys and creative genius can create.
