Halloween Alternative

If the kiddos are bored walking the same block for Halloween, you might want to check out Scream Acres. Sponsored by Lakeland Parks and Recreation, the “friendly neighborhood” pops up at Tigertown tonight from 5:30 to 8:00. The cost is $2 per child and is open for everyone one to 12 and their escorts.

If you live in “unincorporated Polk County” have your child ask a Polk County Sheriff’s deputy for a Glow Stick to use while trick or treating. The sticks will help you see the little goblins in the dark.

As you drive tonight, skip the cell phone, soft drink, or cigarette and keep your eyes focused on the road. Children will pop out from the most unexpected places to dart across the road.
