The City’s annual Halloween Carnival is Monday and offers a free and safe alternative to door-to-door trick-or-treating. The event open is from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Special Events Center, 3301 South W.S. Young Drive.
Carnival activities include games, arts and crafts, a haunted house, pumpkin patch and much more free festive fun. Kids should dress in costume and bring a bag for candy.
The City of Killeen recommends door-to-door trick-or-treating between the hours of 6 and 8 p.m. Households that wish to distribute goodies should turn the front porch lights on to indicate they welcome trick-or-treaters, and trick-or-treaters should only approach houses that have porch lights on.
For a safe and happy Halloween, remember that costumes should not obstruct a child’s vision, hearing or movement and should be flame resistant. Also, parents are reminded to examine all candy before children enjoy it.
