Trick or Treat: Halloween Events in D35 and Safety Tips

Halloween is one of the most enjoyable days of the year for children, but parents should be aware of potential safety risks when not properly supervised. Trick-or-treaters should always have adult supervision, even if they are traveling with groups of friends, to ensure that the only scary experiences children have are those associated with the spirit of Halloween.

  • Children should wear flame-resistant costumes that allow them to move their arms and walk freely without tripping.  Masks should not impede normal vision, breathing, or hearing. Makeup and face paint should be non-toxic.  Use flexible props, such as foam rather than plastic, to avoid children from accidentally hurting one another.
  • Children who trick-or-treat at night should carry a flashlight and wear reflective or light-colored clothing and costumes.  Using reflective tape is also an option.
  • Be aware of your surroundings at all times. Be familiar with the neighborhood you plan on visiting. Practice street safety: be alert when crossing the street, avoid looking down at cellphones.
  • Avoid poorly-lit areas and homes of people you do not know.
  • Travel in groups. Remember, there is safety in numbers (at least 1 adult).
  • Avoid displaying valuables or electronic devices. Thieves will use this holiday to hide behind masks to commit crimes.
  • Place emergency identification information discreetly inside clothing of small children.
  • Adults should inspect all treats before allowing children to consume them.
  • Halloween treats should only be consumed if appropriately packaged in their original, unopened packages.  Avoid homemade or unpackaged treats.
  • Remember to utilize 911 for all emergencies and 311 for non-emergency situations.

Event: PERFORMANCE: The Glass Eye Featuring Hot Hands & members of Victorious Dance Company
Date: Friday, Feb 26, 7-9pm
*Space is limited/ Arrive Early

The placement of a camera on a body of authority as a deterrent of violence to another has created new forms of perception and symbolism concerning race relations and the growing paranoia for “the other” from both citizens and those sworn to protect them. The Glass Eye is a multi-disciplinary performance piece for voice, music, dance and film concerning the disembodiment of the black body through police violence; and the subsequent protests in reaction to these incidents—witnessed through the camera eye.
