Trick-or-treat dates set for Halloween in McAlester, area towns

McALESTER — On Oct. 30, Hartshorne, Kiowa, Krebs, and Wilburton will hold trick-or-treating, and McAlester trick-or-treating will be on Oct. 31.

Kiowa and Wilburton will not be setting designated timeframes for trick-or-treat.

Hartshorne will have trick-or-treating from 6 to 9 p.m.; Krebs will have trick-or-treating from 6 to 10 p.m., and McAlester’s Mayor Priddle said McAlester trick-or-treating will be from 5 to 7 p.m.

Safety is important when planning trick-or-treating this year. According to Halloween-Safety.com, there are safety rules for children to follow, and for adults as well.

Get on the Internet and check your local state website for sex offenders. Almost every state has one, just do a search for your state sex offender site, Halloween-Safety.com recommends. Look up your zip code and it should have a list of registered offenders in your area that includes street addresses. Make sure that your kids stay away from these houses.

Know the route your kids will be taking if you aren’t going with them. Let them know that they are to check in with you every hour, by phone or by stopping back at home.
