Hey there, residents of the Village of East Canton! Halloween is just around the corner, and we have some exciting news for you.

Trick or Treat Safety Tips for Children:

  1. Stay in Groups: When trick-or-treating, it’s always safer to go in groups with friends or family. There’s strength in numbers, and it’s more fun too!
  2. Use Reflective Gear: Ensure that your child’s costume has reflective elements or add reflective tape to make them more visible to motorists, especially as it starts to get dark.
  3. Carry Flashlights: Equip your little ones with flashlights or glow sticks to light up their path and make them easily noticeable.
  4. Check Candy: Before indulging in any treats, always inspect the candy. Discard any unwrapped or suspicious-looking items.
  5. Respect Traffic Rules: Teach your kids to obey traffic rules when crossing streets and only use designated crosswalks.
  6. Plan a Route: Plan your trick-or-treat route in advance, and let someone know where you’ll be going.

Motorists, Be Extra Vigilant:

To all the motorists in our village, we kindly request your cooperation in ensuring a safe Halloween for our children:

  1. Drive Slowly: Please drive at a slower pace, especially during the trick-or-treat hours, and be prepared for sudden stops.
  2. Stay Alert: Keep a watchful eye on the streets, as children may dart out from between parked cars.
  3. Avoid Distractions: Put away your mobile phones and avoid distractions while driving through the village.
  4. Respect Crosswalks: Yield the right of way to pedestrians at crosswalks.

Let’s make this Halloween a memorable and safe experience for everyone in the Village of East Canton. We can’t wait to see all the creative costumes and smiling faces on October 29th! Have a spooky but safe, Halloween!
