Halloween safety is paramount
All children should trick-or-treat with adult supervision. Parents who are a little wary of going door-to-door should consider some of the organized trick-or-treating events sponsored by community groups.
From 4-5:30 p.m. Friday, children are invited to trick-or-treat in downtown Ruston, where merchants will pass out Halloween candy and host special sales. This annual event is well attended and fills downtown with all kinds of ghosts and goblins. And, since the downtown trick-or-treating is set for the late afternoon, parents won’t have to worry about children being out after dark.
