Police across the Badger State are reminding drivers that trick or treaters will be on the streets in big numbers in some areas. Authorities say drivers need to be extra careful and watch for kids darting across the street unexpectedly. Trick or treaters need to stay on the sidewalks and wear costumes that fit them and parents should make sure there are reflective markings on costumes or that kids carry a flashlight. It’s also important to check candy before anyone eats it and avoid homemade treats made by strangers.

Parents say the blue pumpkins and other blue candy buckets are a great way make kids with special needs feel included in the fun of Halloween.
