* Never trick or treat alone! Always find a group of Dracula’s and Frankenstein’s to accompany you
* Carry a flashlight with you at all times and wear glow sticks for extra luminescence.
* Never run from house to house! Enjoy the stroll throughout the night-it only happens once a year!
*Look both ways before crossing the road! People driving should be extra aware of the occasion and SLOW DOWN.
* Wear tight fitting masks and costumes that do not have material or other accessories hanging that might cause an injury. Let’s make sure you say BOO instead of Boo Boo.
* Walk on sidewalks instead of lawns and never get into a car with a stranger!
* Do not enter any homes without an adult. Trick or Treating should remain outside and only visit houses that are well lit!
* Have your parents check all candy before eating and throw away anything that is hand made. Grandma Jenkin’s cookies are ok but never eat anything unwrapped from strangers!
* If you have food allergies, be on the look out for teal pumpkins, which are a sign that the house is giving out gluten free, peanut free treats!
* Trick or Treating in Boston is from 5-8pm so make sure you’re home in time for curfew since that’s when the werewolves come out!
