Trick-or-treating on the North Shore

Before your little princess or monster hits the streets with a pillowcase and candy dreams, check out what time your town has designated for trick-or-treating:

Safety tips

Go to homes you know in your neighborhood.

Check the candy before eating it and throw away anything unwrapped.

Use makeup instead of a mask, or take the mask off when walking from house to house.

Have a planned route and stick to it. Avoid shortcuts and hidden paths.

A light above the door is an invitation: "If the light is not on, then goblins be gone."

Go out in a group; never travel alone.

Use sidewalks. If there isn't one, stay on the left side facing traffic.

Drivers: Be aware of little monsters around the streets.

Set a time for children to be home.
