With Kids in Mind

Trick or Treat!

Turn your porch light on when you are receiving Trick or Treaters, or they will pass you along for the next house on your block. Trick or Treat in Santa Clarita begins at dusk and continues until the kids get tired and go home or all of the porch lights are turned off. Have fun and be safe!

Stay Safe While Trick or Treating

Megan's Law Registered Sex Offenders Website
Before sending your children out, ensure they only meet up with make-believe monsters. On this website, once you agree to the terms, you can enter in your zip code and find exact addresses, photos and offense information on registered sex offenders. Maps are also available.

Trick or Treat Safety Tips From the FDA
Avoid those decorative contact lenses (unless purchased through an eye care professional), drink only pasteurized cider at parties, learn which makeup is approved by the FDA, avoid houses without outside lights on...and why.
