Consider alternatives to neighborhood trick-or-treating

If you're looking for a less scary Halloween alternative for your youngsters, consider taking them to the zoo. Louisville Zoo bills its Halloween celebration as the World's Largest Halloween Party. It's perfect for those with children under 12 who don't want the kids to get scared or hurt while they celebrate the holiday.

Louisville kids can still don their favorite superhero and princess costumes and wind their ways through a hay maze and chat with Muumpkin, the talking pumpkin. They can ride a train and go wild at a dance party.

If you haven't attended, you have one more chance this weekend from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Don't forget to check out all the animals while you're at the zoo!

If your kids still want to trick or treat, make sure that they are aware of the many dangers — strangers, trip-and-fall hazards and collisions with cars. There typically are more auto-pedestrian accidents across the nation on trick-or-treat nights. There are numerous reasons for this. Some communities elect to hold trick or treat on a night other than Halloween. Drivers may be unaware and unprepared to encounter trick-or-treaters as they are making their commutes home.

Drivers may be distracted by their cellphones or their own kids in the car. Other motorists may be under the influence of alcohol or drugs from their own Halloween celebrations. All these factors can combine into a deadly brew that places your children unnecessarily in harm's way.

No one wants to see the holiday marked by injuries or death. Keep your kids safer this Halloween by accompanying them on their neighborhood rounds.
