The City of Westlake has designated Halloween Trick-or-Treating hours of 6 – 8 p.m. on Wednesday, October 31. Please use caution when driving through the city, especially after dusk.
Please keep these safety tips in mind:
1. Young Halloween-goers are encouraged to walk, not run. No jaywalking; cross the street at intersections.
2. Make sure your kids are visible to drivers by using reflective tape on their costume and carrying a flashlight or other illumination device.
3. Makeup is safer than a mask which impair peripheral vision.
4. Make sure the costume is a good fit. Most Halloween injuries are from falls.
5. Secure your pet. Numerous strangers coming to the door can cause them to bolt or bite.
