Grand Junction, CO – Halloween is this Thursday, and the Grand Junction Fire Department, Grand Junction Police Department, Mesa County Sheriff’s Office, and Mesa County Valley School District 51 want you to have a safe, fun holiday! Stay safe with these Halloween tips.
Have an adult come with you to trick-or-treat, and go in a group.
Avoid wearing costumes to school that are gory, scary, violent, or include full-face makeup or a full-face mask.
Light colored costumes and reflective clothing or tape help drivers see trick-or-treaters.
Light the way by carrying flashlights or glow sticks.
Outfits should allow freedom of movement and be fire retardant or fire resistant.
Watch for cars, use crosswalks, and plan a safe route and stick to it.
Eyes should be able to see up, down, forward, and from the sides if you’re wearing a mask.
Eat treats only after your parents have inspected them for signs of tampering.
Never go inside a stranger’s home or vehicle while trick-or-treating, and don’t eat homemade treats unless you know the person who made them.
