If the air is chilly the purchase of outdoor heat lamps and a towel warmer will help your guest be more comfortable as they get out of the swimming pool.
Pool Party Tips For Your Halloween Swimming Pool Party:
A swimming pool game for the kids could include “black light/orange light” similar to red light/green light. LED lighting allows you to change the color of the water and kick off a rousing game.
An in-pool relay race might also be fun for everyone. Play the game tag team style or have individuals fend for themselves! Have your guests push a mini pumpkin across the swimming pool water and see who gets from one end to another first.
Scavenger hunts are always fun. You can scout for sunken objects or for Halloween themed objects hidden around the yard.
What kind of Halloween party would it be without some Halloween-themed “scary” foods? Cook and serve seasonal foods or stick to the tried and true hamburgers or hots on the grill. Don’t forget to pick up some Halloween candy for the kids… and the adults! If there’s space, host a pumpkin carving contest. You can also have a Halloween costume parade and give prizes to the winners — we’ll bet that everyone at your party will be a winner!
