Parrotheads are used to parties. From early summer barbecues to tailgate bashes, parties are a Parrothead staple. Mix the classic Parrothead elements with traditional Halloween festivities for a can't-miss party that your family and friends will love. Here are a few suggestions to help you set up everything without a hitch. 

Require Costumes 
Not everyone likes dressing up in costumes for parties, but Halloween is the one day a year when everyone is willing to. By requiring your friends and family to wear costumes to your party you're guaranteeing a fun atmosphere filled with creativity. Feel free to have awards for the costumes in categories such as "Most Original" or "Best Parrothead." Will someone dress like a land shark?

Serve Seasonal Cocktails 
Cocktails are key at any party, but the classic margarita won't do at a Halloween get-together. You need to tailor your drink menu to the event. Try your hand at a Pumpkin Spice-a-rita!

Check out the recipe below for a single serving of this delicious seasonal beverage. To serve the whole party, all you need to do is double, triple or quadruple and repeat.

Consider serving this cocktail punch style from a pumpkin that you've scooped out and cleaned. Obviously there's no wrong way to make this cocktail, but try to make every aspect of this fun and festive.

Make Zombie Parrothead Decorations 
Do you have tailgate decorations of parrots and sharks in the garage? Dress these fun summery decorations like the undead for decorations that are perfect for Halloween and will surely entertain your fellow Parrothead friends. See how creative you can get spooking your friends with these beloved tailgate items. 

Halloweenize Your Favorite Party Games 
Do you love playing corn hole or ladder ball with a drink in your hand during summer parties? Transform these classic games and use them for Halloween too. Switch out your corn hole beanbags for a spooky substitute or paint your ladder balls like eyeballs. It's a small and silly change but your guests will love it.
