The City of Lakewood will observe Halloween Trick-or-Treating between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 31, 2010.
The Lakewood Division of Fire is distributing reflective tape for children’s costumes through October 31st at all three Lakewood fire stations between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
The City offers these safety tips for parents, residents and drivers:
· Parents should encourage their trick-or-treaters to be especially careful after sunset. If escorting their children, parents should carry a flashlight as an additional safeguard.
· Residents giving out candy and treats can help prevent accidents by reminding children to be especially careful crossing streets and to walk up and down steps, instead of running.
· Halloween night drivers should be especially vigilant. Motorists should drive more cautiously and be prepared to stop.
