Costumed people, walking down the street, bags in hand, calling for a handout….a typical Halloween in the neighborhood! Let’s enjoy this seasonal celebration. Here is what LBPD says (we were at the recent Eastside Police Advisory group)
- check on age appropriateness of your child’s activities
- all children should be accompanied by an adult
- Only visit homes that are well lighted and never go into a stranger’s home
- Apply reflective tape to clothing
- Motorists? – you have an important role to which is to SLOW DOWN
- There is a curfew for those 17 years and younger -they need to be off the street by 10pm unless supervised by an adult or returning from an organized activity/work.
What to do?
4th Street – is having a costumed affair!! Friday October 26th – Fourth Friday will be a Creature Crawl, with trick or treating and live music. There are a few individual stores that will be having costume contests as well.
Party at 7th Street Church – Trunk or Treat in the parking lot on Oct. 31st open to our community. It will begin @6:30pm and start closing down @8:30pm!!
As the days get longer here is the guidance at Rose Park – Park Watch
Pumpkins and tombstones! It’s that time of year! Weather and daylight changes. And of course the night of costumes and candy. Make sure your children of any age (including you) wear reflective materials. So much of Halloween is black – hard for drivers to see you!
In the meantime….
