The rain date for the event will be Thursday, Oct. 27.
Trick -or-treating in Lancaster County will be on Monday, Oct. 31 from 6 to 8 p.m. The Ephrata Police Department suggests the following tips to make this Halloween enjoyable and safe one for all.
Tips for motorists:
? Obey speed limits.
? Watch for children walking along the road or who may run into the street.
? If you are going to a party, remember to designate a sober driver.
Tips for children:
? Walk, don’t run, when crossing streets.
? Remain on sidewalks and only cross streets at lighted intersections.
? Stay within neighborhoods you know.
? Look both ways for approaching cars before stepping off the curb.
? Walk on sidewalks whenever possible.
Tips for parents and guardians:
? Buy or make brightly-colored, highly-visible costumes for children that do not interfere with a child’s ability to see, hear or walk.
? Add strips of reflective tape to darker-colored costumes and trick-or-treat bags.
? Provide a flashlight or glow stick for children to carry.
? Always accompany children while they are trick-or-treating.
? Remind children to pay attention to their surroundings.
? Only give or accept wrapped or packaged candy.
??Examine all candy before allowing children to eat it.
? Keep costumed children away from pets. The pet may not recognize the child and become frightened.
? Avoid hard plastic or wood props such as daggers and swords. Substitute with foam rubber which is soft and flexible.
? Watch for traffic. More HALLOWEEN, page A5
