Tips for the Trick or Treaters:

  • Trick or treaters should travel in a group or pair, using the buddy system is very important to having a safe and fun night.
  • Sidewalks should always be used when available, and make sure to look both ways before crossing a street.
  • Trick or treating in a familiar neighborhood gives you the advantage for when the sun goes down as getting lost can be scary.
  • In case of being separated from your family or friends, make sure to designate a safe meeting place for regrouping.
  • Trick or treaters should also carry a flashlight; the sun sets fast here in the U.P.
  • Always make sure to have a grown up inspect your candy before eating!

Now, here are some tips for parents to stay vigilant.

  • Make sure to discuss with your children that they should not enter homes or vehicles where candy is promised.
  • For an added layer of safety, contemplate the addition of reflective tape to your child’s costume to ensure visibility to approaching vehicles.
  • Make sure your children can see through the eye holes of their face mask before going out.
  • With the Upper Peninsula being so cold, make sure to add layers under the costume for warmth.

This reminder is for all,

  • Drivers must be extra cautious when it’s trick–or–treating time and remain alert for people on foot.

Happy Halloween and have a safe and spooky night.
