Eyewitness News wants to help you keep your kids safe this Halloween.
It's important to keep a few tips in mind when preparing your ghosts or goblins for a night of trick or treating.
Decorate children's costumes and bags with reflective tape so they are more visible.
Keep in mind that masks can make it more difficult for your children to see, so try non-toxic face paint or makeup instead.
Provide glow sticks or flashlights to help your children see and be seen.
Make sure your children's costumes fit so they don't trip over them and fall.
Experts advise children under the age of 12 should not be without adult supervision.
In Huntington on Tuesday, the city held its "Safe Trick or Treating Event" at Pullman Square downtown.
The event was for children ages 12 and under. Batman and his friends helped out with the event and there were dozens of children dressed up in their best Halloween costumes.
Pullman Square merchants and Huntington area businesses teamed up to give out candy in a safe environment. This was the second year for the event.
