SIOUX CITY, Iowa - Halloween is a week away. Sioux City will observe Trick-or-Treating next week Tuesday from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

The Sioux City Police Department offered some safety tips to have a fun and safe Halloween:

  • Make sure your yard is clear of such things as ladders, hoses, flowerpots, pet leashes, etc.

  • Halloween costumes should be made of fire retardant material and the eye holes should be large enough for good peripheral vision.

  • A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children on their neighborhood rounds.

  • If your older children are going alone, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you. Agree on a specific time when they should return home.

  • Only go to homes with a porch light on and never enter a home or car for a treat.

  • Before allowing your children to eat any of the treats, examine them to be sure they are safe to eat.
