It's Halloween!

Today is full of fun and candy, but safety should be number one, so everyone can have a "happy, not scary" Halloween.

And that starts with where you decide to trick-or-treat.

"While you're out trick-or-treating tonight, make sure you know where you are going and kind of be familiar with the houses that you are going to," Emma Davidson, the director at Hazard Lions Montessori School.

Knowing the area can decrease your chances of coming across tainted candies.

"Anything that has an open wrapper, I would immediately discard. If it's home-baked goods, I would use caution. Just anything that is prepackaged, that's sealed should be good to go," said James East, a major at the Hazard Police Department.

Also, checking expiration dates gets rid of old treats.

"When the kids are getting candy, before you allow them to eat the candy, please check through the candy," said Davidson.

Police say to throw away any treats that look unusual.

Also, police are encouraging people to drive slower than usual tonight and to keep an eye out for young ghosts and goblins running around.

Trunk-or-treating is a fun alternative for parents who are concerned about their kids' safety.
