Come Wednesday night, lots of princesses, pirates and pumpkins will head out to collect sugary sweets, and we want to make sure they arrive back home safely. Therefore, as you partake in the fall festivities with your ghosts and goblins, please be sure to follow these tips:
    • Kids should wear bright-colored and reflective clothing, and/or carry a flashlight or glow stick.
    • Ensure children can see while wearing their costumes and masks; opt for face paint rather than masks when possible.
    • Don’t let children go out alone. Have them walk with family and friends, and make sure there is a responsible adult with young children.
    • Inspect all candy before eating it and throw away any open or homemade treats.
    • Trick-or-treaters should use sidewalks and crosswalks when available and should look both ways before crossing streets. Motorists should drive slowly through neighborhoods and watch for little ones trick-or-treating.
    • Adults who choose to drink alcohol or consuming marijuana are encouraged  to do so responsibly and plan for a safe ride home via designated driver,  rideshare, taxi or public transportation
