Tips for Your Little Halloween Hikers

Halloween: an evening filled with creative costumes, scary stories, and tasty treats! Though while the holiday is an exciting one, it also has a reputation for being ominous and unsafe. So, before you hit the neighborhood trick-or-treating, make sure you’ve considered the following precautions (courtesy Halloween-Safety.com):

  • Try trick-or-treating during daylight hours and limiting your time in the dark of night.
  • Don’t let children go out alone. Make sure an adult is with them.
  • Plan a safe route and stick to it. This includes:
    • Not cutting through back alleys, fields, etc.
    • Staying in well-lit and well-populated areas
    • Stopping only at familiar houses in your own neighborhood
    • Never entering a stranger’s home
  • Carry an LED flashlight for increased visibility during the evening.
  • And, of course, do not to eat any treats if they are unwrapped or look suspicious.

As I mentioned earlier, Halloween can be an exciting holiday, especially for young trick-or-treaters. Just be sure, like for anything else, to exercise caution and safety tonight.

Happy Halloween from Coast!
