Looking for Halloween events around town: Halloween Haunted Houses and Other Events in Santee & County Hosts Local Halloween Events for Kids
The San Diego Police Officers Association reminded trick-or-treaters not to venture out alone tonight and to remain visible.
The organization issued a series of tips for a safe Halloween:
-- parents should accompany young children and inspect their loot when they return home;
-- bring a flashlight or glow stick, and attach reflective tape to costumes and candy bags to be visible to drivers;
-- make sure children can see through their masks;
-- simulated knives and guns shouldn't look too realistic;
-- keep costumes away from open flames, especially pumpkins with candles; and
-- drive very carefully.
The POA also said people staying home to pass out candy should welcome trick-or-treaters with their exterior lights on.
