Halloween Night Trick-or-Treating
Neighborhood Trick-or-treating begins between 5:30-6 p.m. Following are some safe trick-or-treating practices:
- Plan a route in advance. Keep in mind that small children may not be able to cover as much ground as older children.
- Wear comfortable shoes.
- Stay well-lit, carry a flashlight or glow necklaces.
- Make sure all costumes are short enough not to be tripped on.
- Avoid masks that hinder a child's eye sight.
- Use flexible props and find an easy way to carry them. Children will tire of carrying them quickly.
- Check your child's candy and discard anything that is questionable.
