Safety and Good times ahead for Prince Rupert's Halloween 2016

As the evening hours approach, the ghosts, goblins and other creatures of the night will be coming up your lane, ready to knock on your door and receive the goodies you have assembled for Halloween.

To keep the evening as safe as possible for all, the BC Children's Hospital has prepared a list of SAFETY TIPS, designed to the help keep the evening a fun one.

The helpful notes cover a range of topics from costume preparation to making sure your home is as safe as possible for your evening visitors.

Besides the traditional door to door travels through the city's neighbourhoods, Prince Rupert celebrates HalloweenFest tonight with the big event at the Prince Rupert Civic Centre.

Events get underway at 6 PM and continue through the evening until 8 PM, with Games, Prizes and a costume parade some of the events planned for the evening.

The main attraction arrives at 8:15 with Annual HalloweenFest Fireworks Display with the pyrotechnics coming from the western sky with Mount Hays as the backdrop.

The Prince Rupert RCMP will also be on patrol this evening keeping an eye out for the youngsters that are taking to the streets and watchful on traffic to ensure that drivers are being as cautious as possible through the night. Later in the evening they will also be keeping watch for any mischievous activity as the witching hour approaches.

So far, the weather forecast is offering hopes for a dry evening, though there is the threat of showers moving in as the evening approaches.

For all those making their rounds Have a Happy and Safe Halloween as you take in all the evening's plans, but be sure to let your parents check out the treats before you dig in.

And of course allow for the Parent tax of a few treats while they do so!
