This year, Halloween is on Friday, Oct. 31. The city of Prairie du Chien is celebrating the holiday with official trick-or-treat hours from 5 to 8 p.m. Sirens will sound in the city at the beginning and end of the fun.
As little ghosts and goblins of the community, and their parents, get ready to enjoy trick-or-treating, Police Chief Chad Abram would like everyone to remember these safety tips:
•Watch for children crossing the street.
•Make sure that your child’s costume has reflective material.
•A parent or adult friend should accompany children.
•Pay attention to all traffic signs and signals.
•Trick or Treat at those houses with porch lights on.
•Stay in neighborhoods that you are familiar with.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, call the Prairie du Chien Police Department at 326-2421.
