Have a safe Trick or Treat experience

ORLEANS – Trick or Treaters in Orleans can knock on residents’ doors with their porch lights on Saturday, October 30th from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m.

The Orleans Police Department provided these safety tips:

  • Use reflective tape on costumes and bags for greater visability.
  • A parent or guardian should accompany children.
  • Have children carry flashlights or glow sticks to make them visible to other trick or treaters and motorists.
  • Stay in groups.
  • Walk on sidewalks when possible and be alert to the traffic around you.

“Statistics tell us that children are more than twice as likely to be killed by a car while walking on Halloween night as at any other time of the year,” said Town Marshal Richard Dixon. 

  • When handing out treats do not give out homemade or unwrapped treats.
  • Adults should inspect all treats prior to children eatting them
  • Only eat candy that is in the original wrapper and unopened.
