Halloween will be here before you know it. Trick-or-Treat hours for the children will take place in the Village of Bensenville from 3-8 p.m. on October 31st. The Village suggests the following safety tips on Halloween.
BE SAFE AND BE SEEN ON HALLOWEEN.
Go Trick-or-Treating with a grown-up.
Visit only people you know and houses that are well lighted.
Make sure your costume lets you see and hear perfectly. You need to be able to watch and listen for cars. Cross the street at intersections with an adult.
Make sure your costume fits. It is easy to trip on costumes that are too big.
Wear brightly colored clothing. Put glow-in-the-dark patches or strips on your costume so drivers can see you.
Carry a flashlight.
NEVER EAT THE CANDY RECEIVED UNTIL A PARENT OR GROWN-UP HAS INSPECTED IT! Report any suspicious candy, vehicles, persons, etc. to your local police department.
ADULTS - Drive slowly.
Make this and every Halloween a safe and happy one!
