Halloween is a big deal in these parts.

My neighborhood, Delray Lakes, goes all out with a Halloween parade as do many others in Boca/Delray.

We put together these handy tips to make sure it’s a safe Halloween for everyone. Enjoy and be careful out there.

Here are a few suggestions from the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention:

For the kids…

* Avoid trick or treating alone. Walk in groups, accompanied by trusted adults.

* Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags so you’re visible to drivers.

* Examine all treats to avoid choking and tampering.

* Carry a flashlight at all times.

* Walk, don’t run, from house to house, so as to keep small  children close by.

* Remove make-up before children go to sleep to prevent possible eye and skin irritation.

* Use established crosswalks when possible.

* Walk only on sidewalks.

* Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, tripping, and falls.

* Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers.

* Children should only enter homes with trusted adults, and be familiar with the hosts.

* Only approach well-lit homes.

* Always wear flame resistant costumes.
