Super Heroes Make Safety Cool for Kids On Halloween

Safety tips for trick-or-treaters this Halloween.
NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Halloween is just around the corner and many Arkansans are coming up with trick-or-treating plans keeping safety first.

The Spirit Halloween Superstore in North Little Rock dedicated a shelf just to safety.

District Manager Clay Simmons said, "The glow sticks help them (kids) to be visible in the evening."

Also, reflective tape and flashlights help to keep kids safe.

If you want to keep it even simpler, the popular Power Rangers could be your answer.

There's reflective material in parts of the costumes, so you can't miss the kids wearing them.

Simmons listed some other tips to keep in mind, "We encourage the kids to stay out in a group when they're trick-or-treating and then not to take any candy that's not wrapped."

But many families are opting out of trick-or-treat all together this year by choosing other alternatives.

Fall Festival Event Organizer Boyd Cox said, "That's one of the reasons we do this, so people have a good wholesome environment to come too."

Fall festivals and church events like the one at Park Hill Christian in North Little Rock on Sunday are attracting more and more families.

Mother Sarah Clements said, "Yeah, this is kind of our Halloween event. We predominantly do this. We dress up and so this is what we mainly do for Halloween."
