Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX All Pro

Trick or TreatIt is that time already.....Ghost's and Goblins and Scary Jackolanterns!!!!!

The official Village of Carol Stream Trick or Treat hours are Wednesday, October 31st from 3-7pm.

To ensure a safe and fun Halloween, please review these safety tips with your children.


                                      ~  SAFETY TIPS ~

Make sure your child's costume does not drag on the ground.

Make sure the costume fits your child and is brightly colored or has reflective markings.

Wear a watch. Preferably one that can be read in the dark.

Accessories like light swords and sticks should be soft and flexible.

Carry a flashlight!

Obey traffic signals. Cross streets between crosswalks or at intersections.  If there are no sidewalks, walk on the parkways. DO NOT WALK IN THE STREETS!!

Walk, don't run! Stay on sidewalks! If there are no sidewalks, walk on the side of the road facing traffic.

Stay away from all animals you don't know. Especially, do not pet dogs you don't know.

Children should trick or treat with an adult.

Trick or treat in neighborhoods you are familiar with and avoid unfamiliar and unlit homes.

NEVER enter a home of someone you do not know for any reason!

Do not eat any candy until it has been inspected by an adult. Even if the candy is wrapped, it should be checked for openings, pin size holes or evidence of tampering. Any "homemade treat" should not be eaten unless it comes from someone you know.

                                                                     IF EVER IN DOUBT, THROW IT OUT!!!


                                                happy halloween

All good advice.  My wife and I always go with our children.  Of course my oldest now thinks she is tough enough to go with her friends.

Thanks for the tips forgot the all important tooth-care recovery program though.

Watch out for a 28 year old male in a cow costume (yes a cow not a that considered drag?).  Him and his 5 year old (Optimus Prime....leader of the Autobots...good-guy Transformers for those who don't know)...are going for the record this year....trying to hit the 50lb (of candy) mark this year.

And, save the fruit people...Halloween is for CANDY....nobody wants your stinkin apples.

Be safe and look both ways...for an ultra-fast, insulin deprived cow being drug relentlessly by a five year old sugar-crazed robot warrior.

John - We know the feeling. We try and use the excuse of... we are taking the dogs for a walk. Our kids also think they don't need us to "tag along." Thanks for stopping by. Nice to hear we are not alone!
