Beggar's Night Safety For All

Safety for all to think about on Beggar’s Night…


KEEP YOUR WALKWAYS AND LAWN WELL LIT AND CLEAR OF ANY DEBRIS. Garden hoses, planters, lawn decorations can all pose as a hazard to anyone walking through.  Whether you like it or not, some trick or treaters will walk through your lawn so make sure your lawn is cleaned of debris as well.

PLAN A ROUTE for your children so you always know where to check if need be.  Set times for them to check in and a time for return.
SCAN YOUR ROUTE by checking for sex offenders in the neighborhood by going to this site: , select your county and this website will link you to the select county’s sex offender registry.   

TRY TO REFRAIN FROM DECORATING WITH LIVE FLAME.  If you put a jack-o-lantern out on your porch, make sure to put it off to the side where children and their costumes will not be near it.
KEEP YOUR PETS, ESPECIALLY CATS, INDOORS.  People are not always nice and the trend has been that some trick-or-treaters will mistreat cats and possibly other animals.  If you have outdoor cats, make sure they stay indoors that evening and watch over your pets!

PROVIDE A GOOD MEAL FOR THE KIDS before they go out for Beggar’s Night so they do not gorge on candy as they are walking door to door and make themselves sick. 

What to take with you:



A cell phone (preferably with GPS) in case of emergency and most important numbers programmed for easy access. 


BE CAUTIOUS WHEN WEARING DARK CLOTHING, FLOWING CLOTHING, OR MASKS:  Flowing clothing can easily trip the wearer or someone nearby.  Flowing clothing can also easily catch fire.  Look for costumes that are labeled as “flame resistant”.  


DARK CLOTHING MEANS NOBODY, INCLUDING DRIVERS, CAN SEE YOU!  Wear reflectors somewhere on your person, like on your shoes.  You can purchase reflective tape at stores such as Walmart, Home Depot, and any other hardware or sporting good stores


 On Beggar's Night:


Children should be accompanied by an adult or a mature child.  

Children should stay away from the streets and only cross at corners or crosswalks.

AVOID HOUSES THAT ARE NOT WELL LIT.   NEVER ENTER A HOUSE, A CAR, OR TALK TO ANYONE YOU DO NOT RECOGNIZE OR SOMEONE WHO IS INSIDE A CAR.  Nowadays people drive in carloads to other neighborhoods.  While most of these people mean well, some may not.

Last but not least, parents; inspect the goodies before you allow your children to consume them.

 Most of all, Have a Happy Halloween!!!
