City of Monroe sets Halloween celebration time and offers advice to families

MONROE, La. (KNOE) – Monroe Mayor Friday Ellis announced that the city will celebrate Halloween on Monday, October 31 from 5-8 p.m.

The city has posted a list of suggestions for a safe trick-or-treating experience.

  1. Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks. Look left, right, and left again as you cross, and keep looking as you cross.
  2. Put down your electronics, keep your head up, and walk, not run, across the street.
  3. Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.
  4. Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible. Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest number of street crossings.
  5. Watch for cars that are turning or backing up. Teach children never to run into the street or cross between parked cars.
  6. Parents must accompany children while trick-or-treating.

In addition to these suggestions, the city of Monroe says it wants to remind drivers to take extra care on the road over Halloween weekend by looking out for pedestrians and obeying traffic laws.
