Trick or treat guidelines

By Katie V. Jones

Shouts of trick or treat will fill the air on Monday, Oct. 31, as children dressed in costumes celebrate Halloween.

Before heading out in search of treats, here are a few guidelines from Prince George’s County and the city of Laurel to ensure a safe and happy Halloween:

Wear a costume that fits well and allows for easy movement. Place reflective tape on it for easier visibility. 

 Masks should have eye holes large enough to offer good visibility.. 

Trick-or-treaters  should walk on sidewalks and carry a flashlight or glow stick. They should only visit houses with lights on  and should not enter any home.

Trick-or-treaters should refrain from eating candy until they are at home.

Young children should trick or treat with an adult. Older children should travel in groups of three or more and should share their route with an adult.

While trick or treating on Halloween night may be the main event, here a few other pre- Halloween events that promise fun and treats, too:

Fall Festival: Live music, face painting, crafts, games and family fun with appearances by the Count and Peter Pumpkin. Halloween costumes encouraged. Oct. 22, 1 to 3 p.m. Towne Centre Laurel, 14828 Baltimore Ave.

Kids’ Halloween Carnival: The American Legion of Laurel hosts a carnival for children ages 2 to 12 and accompanied by adults. Free; tickets required. Oct. 23, 1 to 3 p.m. American Legion Post 60, 2 Main St.
