The City of Kenosha continues its Halloween tradition of trick or treat from 4 to 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 31.
Households interested in giving away treats should indicate their interest by turning on a light on their porch or in the front yard.
Drivers are reminded to slow down and take extra caution during the hours of trick-or-treat, to avoid accidents.
Sunset on Oct. 31 is 5:45 p.m.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers the following safety tips for trick or treat:
- Eat only factory-wrapped treats.
- Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers.
- Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips and falls.
- Look both ways before crossing the street. Use crosswalks wherever possible.
- Swords, knives, and other costume accessories should be short, soft and flexible.
- Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them.
- Consider adding reflective tape to costumes to assist in visibility after dark.
