With a night of haunting ahead, make plans to make sure your goblins and ghosts are visible

Tonight is the night that the parade of creatures make their rounds around the city and with social media already laying out a map of sorts as to where some of the best displays may be, the streets in some areas may be a little congested as the viewing party begins.

As a quick tour of the city has shown over the last few nights, Prince Rupert residents seem to be embracing the spirit of Halloween more and more, with some fairly elaborate displays already having lit up the nights through the week.

As the night arrives however, the need for safety should be foremost in the minds of all, with drivers reminded to travel carefully along the city's streets as the trick or treaters make their rounds.

Around the house, residents are reminded to make sure the path is clear towards their house and proper lighting is available, while still keeping to your theme of the night.

Towards Safety in the community, the members of the Prince Rupert Fire/Rescue Department offered up one reminder towards safety, that of using crosswalks and not to dart across the streets as the treating hours arrive.

The British Columbia Automobile Agency has also offered up some helpful advice, providing for  Safety tips for both trick or treaters and motorists on the evening.

Members of Prince Rupert's RCMP detachment will be out on the streets this evening as well, to ensure that all remains safe across the city.

In addition to the traditional door to door collection, both the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre and Earl Mah Aquatic Centre will be hosting events tonight. Included as part of tonight's Civic Centre program is the always entertaining Parade of Costumes which takes place at 6:15PM

Halloween also means Fireworks Night and tonight's showcase of pyrotechnics will take place over the Golf Course with Mount Hays as the background for the show, the first burst should come shortly after 8:15 tonight.

To help get everyone around town tonight, Prince Rupert Transit is offering FREE TRANSIT from 6 to 9 PM, as well they will be operating on their Friday schedule this evening to allow for additional service around the city.
