Harris, High streets to be closed for trick-or-treaters

Daily News staff report

BRECKENRIDGE – Breckenridge Police officers will close Harris and High streets from 5-8 p.m. Halloween night (Friday) as goblins, witches and a few SpongeBob Square Pants go trick-or-treating.

The two streets have long been the most popular trick-or-treat spots in town, attracting hundreds of children and their parents.

Parking will be available at Breckenridge Elementary School and Colorado Mountain College.

The police department also wants to give parents a few tips to make the evening safer for their children.

n Use make-up or face paint instead of masks. However, if masks are used, make sure they fit properly and have holes large enough for mouth and eyes.

n Choose costumes that are marked “flame retardant.”

n Wear light-colored clothing at night. Add reflective tape or reflectors to dark clothing. Make sure costumes do not cover shoes to prevent tripping.

n Make props such as swords or magic wands out of cardboard, rather than metal or wood.

n Only give and accept packaged or wrapped candy.

n Bring treats home for adult inspection before they are eaten.

n Trick-or-treat in groups, and send older children with elementary school age groups.

n Carry a flashlight in case of delay.

n Stay within your neighborhood when trick-or-treating and only visit homes you know.
