Safety first

Make sure your Halloween is full of treats, not tricks.

  • Drive slow, the streets will be filled with little ones hyped up on sugar
  • Incorporate reflective gear or light-up accessories into your kids’ costumes
  • Map out a route ahead of time with kids who are going without a guardian
  • Homemade treats are great, but it’s better to be safe than sorry, stick to prepackaged store-bought goodies
