Statement as issued Wednesday by the Allen County Sheriff's Department:
Enjoy Halloween by being aware and staying safe. Please practice these safety tips:
• Wear bright clothing
• Have a flashlight
• Watch for traffic
• Have an adult with you
• If you do not have an adult, stay in large groups
• Have an adult check your candy before eating
• Stay in well-lit areas
• Never enter a home of a stranger
• MOST OF ALL HAVE FUN!
Allen County Sheriff Kenneth Fries recommends the hours of 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for Trick or Treat in the county, to coincide with the City of Fort Wayne. Huntertown and Leo also have the same hours.
