Pretend ghosts, goblins and ghouls should be the scariest thing about Halloween but the likelihood of a motor vehicle fatality for children is four fold on October 31. Drivers need to be extra cautious and parents can ensure children are supervised and that costumes make children more, not less, visible to motorists.
Many parents are opting for indoor events or festivals like the one at the Kempsville Church of Christ to lessen the chances of injury or death. Children are treated to candy, games, prizes and fun without tricky street navigation.
The Kempsville Church of Christ event runs from 5-8 pm on October 31. Admission is free and open to the public. Inflatables, cakewalks and trunk or treat (visiting decorated parked cars to get candy), round out the fun. For more information call 490-3925.
