LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - We're less than an hour away from the start of a Halloween tradition. Trick-or-Treating can be a fun activity, but does it pose some dangers to children? WKYT's Jerrika Insco is in Lexington, with more on how to keep your children safe tonight.
We are about one hour from the official start time of trick or treating in Lexington, so there are no trick-or-treaters out yet but most homes in Gratz Park are geared up and ready.
This Halloween, police want to remind everyone safety is the most vital key to having a fun night. Things like wearing reflective material or carrying a flashlight are necessary, so others can see you.
For the young ghosts and goblins, having an adult with you at all times is important. And police say its still important for those not participating in Halloween to be extra cautious while out and about tonight.
"Keep your eyes open. One of the biggest problems we have is when we drive we multi-task and this is not the night to be multi-tasking with all the kids that will be out Trick or Treating. So, we are asking those motorists to take a little extra caution," sayd Ron Turley with Kentucky State Police.
Police also add that once you get home from trick-or-treating, check your candy and make sure nothing has been tampered with.
If you are still trying to decide where to Trick-or-Treat tonight, consider Gratz Park. It was recently named one of the best areas to fill your candy bags by MSN.com.
Police also recommend that you only approach houses with their lights on, which is a universal sign of welcoming Trick-or-Treaters.
