Halloween safety is paramount
Whether participating in trick-or-treating or an organized fall festival, safety should be the top priority.
Children’s costumes shouldn’t obstruct their vision or be too bulky or hot. Although temperatures have cooled in recent weeks, Louisiana weather is notoriously unpredictable.
A lightweight cotton costume is the best option for local trick-or-treaters.
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.
