Beggars' Night Safety Tips


Tips to encourage fun and limit the mischief:

  • Use a reflective band or tape on the costume so the child is easily seen.
  • Keep costumes short enough that kids won't trip on them.
  • Use treat bags with handles so kids can keep their arms free.
  • Use flashlights to light your way, not candles.
  • Adults should check candy to ensure the wrapper has not been tampered with prior to a child consuming.
  • Treats not commercially wrapped should not be eaten.
  • Children should be accompanied by an adult.
  • Only visit homes that have porch lights turned on.
  • Don't enter strangers' homes.
  • Use sidewalks - don't cut across lawns.
