Macaroni Kid Lafayette has partnered with numerous business sponsors to start Boo Baskets, a “pay it forward” type of activity during the month of October.

The idea of the Boo Basket is that when you receive one on your doorstep, you turn around and make two more and surprise two of your neighbors or friends by leaving it on their doorstep. Throughout the month, the Halloween fun will spread throughout the community.

Macaroni Kid Lafayette & Sponsors have put together more than 150 baskets that will be delivered this weekend all across town. Once you receive one, be sure to hang the “We’ve Been Boo’d” sign on your door and pass on the fun.

You don’t have to wait until you receive one to give one though. Visit and get the printables to make your own baskets and start the trend with your neighbors. Direct article link: []
