The city offers the following practical tips for citizens and their family members to enjoy the traditional event: • Children should walk in pairs and always stay on the sidewalk. • Adults should accompany children under 12. • Children should wear reflective clothing. • Adults should pin information in their children’s pockets that includes name, address and phone number, in case children gets separated from the group. • In addition to selecting a safe route with good lighting, children should also be equipped with flashlights with fresh batteries or glow sticks to increase visibility. • Adults should inspect treats before children are allowed to eat them. • Children who eat a meal before they trick-or-treat may be less likely to eat their candy before an adult can approve it. • Properly throw away unwrapped or unpackaged candy, as well as all candy wrappers.
