Please note, the above locations and times were all that is available at time of publishing. Below are a great list of tips and safety precautions for trick-or-treating courtesy of the Lapeer County Sheriff's Department,

  • Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as
    you cross.
  • Put electronic devices down and keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street.
  • Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them. Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are
    no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far tothe left as possible. Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest street
    crossings.
  • Watch for cars that are turning or backing up. Teach children to never dart out into the street or cross between parked cars.
  • Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without adult supervision. If kids are mature enough to be out without
    supervision, they should stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat in groups.
  • Keep costumes both creative and safe.Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and, if possible, choose light
    colors.
  • Choose face paint and makeup whenever possible instead of masks, which can obstruct a child’s vision.
  • Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers.
  • When selecting a costume, make sure it is the right size to prevent trips and falls.
  • Drive with extra caution on Halloween. Slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods. Children are excited on
    Halloween and may move in unpredictable ways.
  • Take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs.
  • Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully.
  • Eliminate any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings.
  • Drive slowly, anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic and turn your headlights on earlier in the day to spot children from a distance.
