NORTH TONAWANDA - The City of North Tonawanda has set the period of 5 to 8 p.m. for Halloween trick-or-treating hours for Wednesday, Oct. 31.
Mayor Rob Ortt offers the following reminders for adults and children:
• No child should go trick-or-treating alone. Always accompany your younger children; older children can go in groups.
• Tell children to go only to homes and neighbors they know and only to houses with lights on.
• Remind children to walk on sidewalks and be cautious when crossing streets.
• Tell children to turn down all invitations to enter homes, or getting into cars.
• Check labels to see that all costumes and accessories are flame-resistant.
• Make sure all face paints, glues, and glitters are nontoxic.
• Your child’s costume shouldn’t drag on the ground.
• Don’t allow children to carry sharp objects.
• If your child wears a mask, make sure it fits securely and have eyeholes large enough so that they can see.
• Warn children not to eat treats before returning home (a filling dinner can help).
Trick or Treat at the Mayor’s office will be available between 4:30 and 5:30 p.m. for trick-or-treaters to get a treat from Mayor Ortt.
Have a fun and safe Halloween.
