The city of Geneva wants all little ghosts, witches and goblins to have a fun and safe Halloween experience this year.
So the city is recommending children and their parents trick-or-treat in their neighborhoods between 3 and 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31.
The downtown business community will again be offering free treats to children from 2 to 5 p.m. Oct. 31.
For those looking for a weekend option, Geneva Commons will have trick-or-treating from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 27.
In nearby Batavia, police suggest the trick-or-treat hours of 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 31.
Here are some safety tips for your little ones:
- Walk in small groups, not alone.
- Bicycles and skateboards should be left at home.
- Younger children should be accompanied by adults.
- Costumes should not restrict vision.
- Use stick-on reflective material generously.
- Carry a flashlight if out after dark.
- Only give or accept wrapped or packaged candy.
- Parents should examine candy carefully before children are allowed to eat it.
Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
