Here is how we know:

- You need a two outfits each day, but most importantly a jacket, boots, and scarf after sundown
- Christmas music and decorations are readily available at any local retailer for over a month
- You can not carve your pumpkin tell the night before Halloween because it will rot during the day
- There are pop-up carnivals all over town
- Nevada Day falling on a Saturday equals a 5 day hiatus for school age kids
Local Haunted Houses:
- Fright Dome (Circus Circus)
- The Asylum – Chaos at the Cannery (Cannery North)

All that is left is locating the largest pillow case and going Trick-or-Treating around the neighborhood. Here are some helpful safety tips provided by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
Before Children Go Out:
- Make sure costumes fit properly and allow for ease of movement.
- Shoes should be size appropriate and not be over sized or hard to walk/run in.
- Props should be free from jagged edges or sharp points.
- Allow free hands though and do not create a look that requires young children to carry anything other than their candy bag.
- Choose reflective materials and flame resistant additions to costumes.
- Face paint allows for better vision/hearing than masks which may be too big or small for a child’s face.
- Organize kids in groups with adult supervision at all times.
- Include flashlights or other light sources for sidewalks, street crossings, etc.
While Out And About:
- Obey all traffic and pedestrian laws. Cross only at marked intersections and be on the lookout for traffic at all times.
- Kids are easily distracted and do not pay attention to their surroundings. Adults must be aware of this at all times.
- Stay within known boundaries and avoid unknown homes or areas.
- Pre-plan your route and have a designated return time.
- Review treats before eating and discard anything that you cannot verify or that looks previously opened or tampered with.
- Have rules and communication with older children if they go without an adult.
