Costume tips for trick-or-treaters in Schenectady
Everyone knows to check your candy, but the safety of your costume is just as important. Don’t wear dark clothing if you intend to go out after sunset, and don’t wear a costume that makes it easy to trip. Loose chains, belts, or straps can make for a quick end to what could have been a fun night.
If you are going to any event where there will be a fire or even candles, then make sure you’re not wearing a loose costume that could get away from you and catch fire. We wish you all a safe Halloween from Fuccillo Kia.
