October has finally arrived, which means we’re just a few short weeks away from a child-favorite holiday: Halloween. Kids and cars will be out in droves on trick-or-treat night, so here are some Halloween safety tips from us here at Mangold Ford to make this upcoming holiday one to remember.
Wear Comfortable Shoes
Comfortable shoes are the backbone to enjoying trick-or-treat night. Uncomfortable shoes, such as those that are part of a costume, will lead to misery on all parts. Most parents don’t want to carry their young child from house to house as they collect that sweet candy. Forego the princess slippers and stick with a comfortable pair of shoes that the kids can run around in for hours on end.
Masks may look cool and seem like a necessity for every Halloween costume, but they have a few unfortunate side effects as well. Masks can reduce visibility and cut off air flow, either of which could quickly become a recipe for disaster. Avoid masks and use face paint or makeup instead.
Halloween weather can vary, but don’t underestimate the potential cold chill of fall. Dress warmly if the weather calls for it. Don’t forget that you could be walking from house to house for a couple hours! You can always take your jacket off if you get too warm.
Here at Mangold Ford, we hope you have a fun and safe Halloween!
