Have a safe and happy Halloween

Halloween events around Pinellas County are underway – and in “the spirit” of the season - the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office offers these safety tips:

- Examine all children’s treats before they are consumed. This applies to packaged items as well as homemade treats – if there is a doubt – throw it out!

- If your child’s costume has a mask – make sure they can see – face paint is always better. Make sure your trick or treater can walk comfortably in their costume. Prevent falls with a proper fit.

- Adults with flashlights should accompany young trick or treaters. Walk in groups, stay on the sidewalks or walk against traffic on the side of the road.

- Even though Halloween is on a week night this year – drivers should expect costumed children to be out after dark in the neighborhood – and drive cautiously.

- Unless children are trick or treating at the home of a relative or close friend – children should never enter a stranger’s home to obtain Halloween treats.

In addition to trick or treating near home – there are any number of safe Halloween activities sponsored by shopping centers, community groups and parks. Check the many online listings in Pinellas County, including this one put together by the TBNweekly.com staff.

Young people who are past the trick or treat age, often find ways to amuse themselves on Halloween by vandalizing private property. Any intentional act resulting in property damage will be dealt with accordingly by Sheriff’s deputies.

So if your little ghosts and goblins are “lurking for fun,” with some thought and planning, Halloween can be a safe and enjoyable observance for all ages.
