BUCKHANNON – If you’re looking to celebrate Halloween from home this year, look no further: On Saturday, Oct. 24, AsadKhanMediaLLC will present a ‘Not So Scary Halloween Party,’ and it’s entirely virtual.
A ‘Not So Scary Halloween Party’ is slated for 7 p.m. online; just log onto The Pros & Khans’ Facebook page.
“This party is all virtual and will take place right in your home,” according to a press release from Asad Derya Khan, who is hosting the Halloween happening. “All you have to do is log onto Facebook, and a virtual broadcast by Pros & Khans will be broadcasted for all to see. This will be a completely safe alternative to going out and trick-or-treating with the current COVID-19 pandemic.”
The party will be comprised of a variety of special guests including musical guest Key to Adam, Delegate Danielle Walker and more.
Participants may also join the spooky fun, Khan said.
“The fun does not just stop with you watching, you at home can also take part: On the 24th, we will be having a costume party where you at home can win different prizes including coupons for Buckhannon businesses, candy and much more,” he said.
Costume contest divisions are adults, kids and pets, with each category corresponding with a unique set of prizes.
A ‘Not So Scary Halloween Party’ will be hosted by Halloween expert Greg Popovich, and costume contest judges include city councilwoman Pam Bucklew, Popvich and Crowning Touch owner Elissa Linger.
“This will be a safe and alternative way for all people, no matter where you live, to be able to take part in a safe way of getting candy and dressing up,” Khan said. “If you are camera shy, then you can watch and enjoy. The possibilities are endless.”
Khan said came up with the concept after hearing public health-related concerns about traditional trick-or-treating.
“I came up with this idea after hearing the community’s worry about sending their kids out for some Halloween candy,” he said. “This will give our community a chance to make sure your kiddos, adults, or even pets are happy and safe with the current pandemic. We will even have doctors and nurses on to talk about the risk of sending your kids out, so all bases will be covered #BuckhannonStrong.”
