The Phenix City Police Department has recommended the observation date for Halloween be Thursday, Oct. 31, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. along with the following recommendations for a safe evening of Halloween activities:
*Remember to wear either a brightly lit costume or one that has reflective tape.
*Ensure that costume does not impair the child's ability to see or walk.
*Small children should be accompanied by an adult while trick-or-treating.
*It is always a good idea to trick-or-treat within one's own neighborhood.
