Halloween Safety & Health Tips
News from Valley News Live:

As children head out to trick or treat tonight, consider these costume safety tips from Consumer Reports:

  • Avoid baggy, billowing skirts and cloaks that could brush up against a candlelit pumpkin.
  • Be careful when using paint on faces. The paint could trigger allergic reactions.
  • Beware of masks that could block a child’s vision.

Trick-or-treaters will be out in full force, but before going door-to-door you can stop at West Acres Mall where there’s trick or treating from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
