Happy Halloween

If you're taking kids Trick or Treating tonight, here are some great safety tips from the Children's Museum of Houston


  • Never trick-o-treat alone. Go with at least two friends. Young children should go with an adult. 
  • Wear something that will reflect light. Carry a flashlight or glow stick so that cars can see you at all times.
  • Plan your route in advance, and make sure your family knows it.
  • Visit only houses where the lights are on or have Halloween decorations.
  • Accept treats only at the door; NEVER go inside a stranger’s house.
  • Be very cautious of strangers and pets you do not know.
  • Always have your parents check your candy before you eat it.Halloween-character.jpg
  • Take a cell phone with you, if possible.

If you're not Trick or Treating yourself or with kids, remember:

  • There will be a lot of kids in the neighborhood. Please drive slowly and carefully!
  • Lights on means you're handing out candy. 
  • Lights off means you're not.
  • If you are handing out candy, please secure your pets. Even if your pet is kid friendly, not all kids can/want to be around animals. Also, costumes and noise can scare a normally friendly pet.

This is a great night and a lot of fun in The Heights! Kids come from all over to Trick or Treat here because it's a safe, family friendly neighborhood. Let's put our best foot forward!
