Halloween not so scary
Police officers in the town of Manlius won't have much dressing up to do this Halloween, they can wear their uniforms. The Manlius police are sponsoring a Halloween Safety Night for children. Teaching children how to stay safe and travel in groups are some of the goals the Manlius police hope to achieve. They also hope the kids will use these lessons not just on the spooky holiday, but incorporate them every day of their lives.
Halloween safety is a huge concern for many parents and children. That's why over 200 people showed up to the event last year. This year the Manlius police are expecting an even bigger crowd. Along with safety tips, children and parents can expect to recieve free food, glow sticks, ID cards and tours of the police station.
The event takes place on October 17th at the Manlius Police Department. The Halloween Safety night begins a 5:30 and will end around 8:00 in the evening. For more information, visit urbancny or the Daily Orange's website.
