Police in Muskoka are hoping Trick-or-Treaters will have a safe and fun Halloween
OPP in Muskoka is sending out some reminders on how parents and kids can ensure this Halloween is a safe one.
Police say parents should try to avoid letting your kids wear masks, over-sized shoes, long dresses or caps.
Officials suggest using face paint in place of a mask.
Kids should also have brightly-coloured clothing or reflective tape attached to them so they are visible to drivers in the dark.
Trick-or-Treaters should never eat any candy collected until your parents have had a chance to check it out first.
Police also say kids under 10 should be accompanied by a parent and if they’re 10 or over and you’re sending them out, they should be with a group of friends.
Drivers should be cautious in residential areas and be aware of kids crossing the street.
Parents should plan out a route and set a curfew for your kids if you’re sending them out with their friends.
