Minster Trick or Treat Night Set for October 26

Staff Writer

Trick or Treat night in Minster has been set for Thursday, October 26 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., the village has announced.

Some Tips from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP):
— Plan costumes that are bright and reflective.  Make sure that shoes fit well and that costumes are short enough to prevent tripping, entanglement or contact with flame.
— Consider adding reflective tape or striping to costumes and trick-or-treat bags for greater visibility.
— A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children on their neighborhood rounds.  Obtain Flashlights with fresh batteries for all children and their escorts.
— If your older children are going alone, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you.  Agree on a specific time when they should return home.
— Only go to homes with a porch light on and never enter a home or car for a treat.
— Because pedestrian injuries are the most common injuries to children on Halloween, remind Trick-or-Treaters to stay in a group and communicate where they will be going.
— Remain on well-lit streets and always use the sidewalk.
