Village of Worth Trick or Treat Hours 3pm - 7pm on Oct 31st & Halloween Safety Tips.

he Village of Worth Trick or Treat hours are 3pm until 7pm on Wednesday October 31st.

Keep safety in mind while Trick or Treating!

* Walk on the sidewalk. If there is no sidewalk, walk facing traffic.

* Cross streets at crosswalks or corners. Look both ways and keep looking for cars as you cross the street.

* Do not dart out from between parked cars.

* Make sure costumes are not so long that they can be tripped over.

* Use face-paint rather than masks, which can obstruct vision.

* Children younger than 12 should be supervised by an adult.

* Costume accessories should be made of a flexible material. Never let kids carry sharp objects.

* Trick or treat in groups.

* Attach a flashlight or glow stick to children’s costumes, to make them more easily seen by drivers.

* Give kids light-colored or reflective treat bags.

* Give a cellphone to older children who are trick-or-treating without an adult. Instruct them to check in occasionally. Call them if they don’t call you.

* Establish a planned trick or treat route, as well as a return time.

* Remind children to never enter a stranger’s house.

* Remind children to go only to homes that have the front lights on.

* Insist that candy be brought home for inspection before being eaten. Look for signs of tampering, such as torn wrappers or discolored items. If in doubt, throw it out.

Thank You and Happy Halloween.
