Haunted or hilarious? Eerie or elegant? However you like your Halloween decor, it always brings a dose of creativity to neighborhoods around Houston. 

As we all seek a safe and fun way to celebrate this pandemic Halloween, look no farther than The Buzz Magazines'  Scavenger Hunt, a journey around your neighborhood for all ages.  

Grab your family, favorite person, or scavenge solo, and see how many of these Halloween sights you can spot. Share your finds on social media with #Buzzoween for a possible repost! Or email [email protected]

Scavenger hunt

How many of these Halloween sights you can spot in your neighborhood? Download and print the scavenger hunt here. 

Take this scavenger hunt with you on a Saturday afternoon stroll. Take it out on the “big night” in lieu of trick or treating. Maybe the kids can earn a piece of candy in their buckets with each decoration they spot.  The scavenger hunt even works well for a rainy day - just throw your family in the car with a few print outs and stickers, and cruise Houston’s most imaginative neighborhoods. 

This year, you will find no shortage of skeletons keeping everyone safe by wearing a face mask. (Never mind their lack of all vital signs.) There are larger-than-life inflatable Halloween creatures on the lawn. There are ghosts flying through the trees. And there are spiders crawling over everything.  

Bring your eagle eye; witch’s hat optional.

If you can’t make it out to explore the neighborhood, enjoy these photos from some of our most festive neighbors.
