Ocean City’s Halloween will not be on Halloween. The City postponed trick-or-treating to this Friday because of the bad weather forecast. Trick-or-treating hours are 5-8 p.m. Friday.
Here are a few safety tips from the City:
- Wear reflective clothing.
- Stay in large groups.
- Young children should be accompanied by an adult.
- Obey the pedestrian safety laws — it is dark and vehicle drivers may not see you.
- Carry a flashlight.
- Costumes should not restrict visibility.
- Do not open any candy until you get home and your parents inspect the items.
- Report any suspicious person or activity to the police immediately.
The Thursday forecast calls for a chance of showers and thunderstorms, with gusts up to 43 mph, according to the National Weather Service.
