Villages set Halloween hours

TRI-COUNTY AREA—Even though Halloween falls on a Sunday, area villages have scheduled that to be the day for trick-or-treating hours.
Each village individually set trick-or-treat hours for Oct. 31, and most picked 6 to 8 p.m. The one exception is Hammondsport, which chose 6 to 7 p.m. As always Halloween can be a fun time, but it does require some extra attention to safety.
The New York State Troopers offers the following suggestions:
• Welcome trick-or-treaters at home by turning on your exterior lights.
• Remove objects from your yard that might present a hazard to visitors.
• Drive slowly all evening -you never know what creature may suddenly cross your path.
• Report any suspicious or criminal activity to your local police or sheriff’s department.
• Make sure older kids go out with friends. Younger children should be accompanied by an adult. If you live near a rural area, offer your kids a ride in the car.
• Remind children not to enter a strange house or car.
When it comes to costumes:
• Check that costumes are flame-retardant so that the little ones aren’t in danger near candle-lit jack-o-lanterns and other fire hazards.
• Keep costumes short to prevent trips, falls, and other bumps in the night.
• Encourage children to wear comfortable shoes.
• Try make-up instead of a mask. Masks can be hot and uncomfortable, and, more importantly, they can obstruct a child’s vision—a dangerous thing when kids are crossing streets and going up and down steps.
• Make sure children wear light colors or put reflective tape on their costumes.
