Happy Halloween!

Halloween is around the corner! We want to make sure everyone has fun. Here are some tips we found on how to celebrate safely!

For parents:

  • Place strips of reflective tape on the back and front of costumes, so that drivers can better see your child.
  • Put your child’s name, address and phone number on their costume.

If your child is going out without an adult:

  • Discuss in advance the route they should follow. Ask them to call you if they plan to go on a street that isn’t on the route.
  • Tell your children not to eat anything until they get home.

For children and youth:

  • Always travel in groups. Be sure there are at least 3 of you at all times.
  • Don’t visit houses that are not well lit. Never go inside a stranger’s house.
  • Don’t eat any of your treats before you get home. Once home, ask your parents to look through your treats with you to make sure everything is okay.

For homeowners:

  • Some children have food allergies. Consider giving treats other than candy, such as stickers, erasers or a small toy.
  • Use alternative to candles in your pumpkins, such as a flashlight or a battery-operated candle.

Alternatives to traditional trick-or-treating

  • Local community centers sometimes offer Halloween night activities.
  • Local shopping centers often have trick-or-treated nights for young children in a more controlled environment.
  • Plan a Halloween night at home with themed games and movies. Invite friends.
