Tips for Trick or Treaters
Halloween is made fun for everyone when some simple guidelines are followed.  Though the popularity of trick or treating has been on a steady decline, many communities still celebrate Halloween with trick or treating.  Listed below are some tips to help keep your trick or treating, safe and fun for years to come.
  • Check costumes for tripping and vision hazards.  Add reflectors to clothing and layers if cold.
  • Visit restroom before venturing out.  Bathroom requests can be tricky.
  • Accompany young children.   Please no drop-offs in strange neighborhoods.
  • Take a flashlight, band aids, water and gloves.  Extra treat bags may also come in handy.
  • Remind children to respect the property of others.  Don't run, stay off lawns, don't litter.
  • Teach children to watch out for smaller children.  No pushing or shoving.
  • Only visit homes where porch lights are on.  Only ring or knock once.
  • Teach children the icebreaker "Trick or Treat", encourage them to smile and say thank you.
  • Teach children not to grab or request more treats.
  • No double dipping.  Only one visit per home.
  • Practice safety.  Children are hard to see on Halloween night.
