Halloween events abound this weekend

ORANGE — Looking for things to do that are family-friendly this Halloween, then here is a sampling of events across Orange County this weekend.

While out trick or treating with your friends and family, keep in mind a few safety tips in order to have a fun-filled night.

• Carry a flashlight, glow stick or wear reflective tape on a costume to increase visibility to cars.

• Never go into a strangers house. Make sure mom or dad is within sight when you go trick-or-treating.

• Be careful crossing a street. Look for traffic in both directions and obey all crosswalks.

• For older children and teenagers, make sure parents know where you are going. They only want you to be safe!

• If you have a curfew, then be home at that appointed time.

• Never eat treats without bringing them home to be examined.
