Get ready to break out the candy for kids in Lakewood.
Just like it has for years, Lakewood’s Trick or Treat will take place on Halloween from 6 to 8 p.m.
Luann Baker, administrative assistant at Lakewood City Hall, said that children are encouraged to wear reflective clothing and ideally should be accompanied by an adult.
City officials are also offering some additional safety tips:
- Parents are encouraged to remind trick-or-treaters to be especially careful after sunset. If escorting their children, parents should carry a flashlight as an additional safeguard.
- Residents giving out candy and treats can help prevent accidents by reminding children to be especially cautious crossing streets. Also, encouraging youngsters to walk up and down steps is a good idea, too.
- Drivers on Halloween should keep their eyes peeled for trick-or-treaters.
The city used to pass out reflective tape to Trick-or-Treaters, but isn’t offering that program this year.
Also, to note, the Lakewood Senior Health Campus is hosting its “spooktacular" night of trick or treat. The parade route begins at 6 p.m. in the Health Center and ends in the Assisted Living, where "tricks" will accompany "treats.” Refreshments will be provided.
