HALLOWEEN TRICK-OR-TREATING HOURS AND SAFETY TIPS
October 19, 2012 – The Midland Police Department encourages those planning on participating in Halloween trick-or-treating on Wednesday, October 31 to do so between the hours of 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.
The police department also offers these tips for ensuring safety during trick-or-treating:
o Dress your child in light-colored, reflective clothing.
o If your child is going to wear a mask, make sure the eye holes are large enough to avoid visual obstruction.
o Adults should accompany children.
o Bring a flashlight.
o Cross the street only at corners.
o Have an adult check candy and other treats before they are eaten.
