It’s fun to take your little zombies and witches out trick-or-treating on Halloween. So much so they usually want the festivities to last longer than one night. To help extend your Halloween festivities, we’re sharing ideas for Monterey County Halloween events on our blog and this post pertains to Halloween in Pebble Beach in 2016.
Pebble Beach Zombie or Survivor?
It may depend on how well you run!
Would you like to be part of something that’s educational, offers useful information, and is gory fun? Then the 1st Annual Pebble Beach Zombie Race and Emergency Preparedness Fair is for you. This particular ‘zombie run’, presented by the Pebble Beach Community Services District, has serious purpose behind it. Bound to get attention, this event will get your kids outside and active, and could develop their interest in safety preparedness! Whether zombie or survivor, the 5K Crawl or 2K Stroll both result in a tasty snack at the end, and offers an opportunity to check out Preparedness booths set up for your interest. Zombies are entered into a best dressed contest and winners will receive emergency preparedness backpacks…. very important in the event of a zombie apocalypse or other emergency.
Further Information concerning this year’s October 18th event can be found online here.
As much fun as Halloween can be, there are safety concerns you and your family should be aware of.
As you look forward to October 31st, Pebble Beach Community Services District has some important safety tips for you:
- Look for flame-resistant material in all Halloween costumes.
- Apply reflective tape to costumes to make it easier for motorists to see your kids.
- If you’re driving, watch for little treat-or-treaters who may be unaware of you.
- Consider giving your children flashlights or glow sticks to increase their visibility.
- Try to avoid costumes that have billowing or trailing fabric. Also, keep hemlines short so the little ones don’t trip.
- Some masks obscure vision; when you can, use make-up instead.
- Candy and goodies collected Halloween night are wonderful and enticing, but remember to inspect everything that’s brought home. Throw it out if you have any doubt!
- And, of course, it’s always best that a responsible adult accompanies children as they go trick-or-treating.
Safety around the home is important too.
- Always use battery powered lights for your jack-o-lanterns.
- Some decorations, such as dried flowers, crepe paper, and so forth, are highly flammable and need to be kept away from flames or other heat sources.
- Make sure to clear exits of anything that could block them.
Have a safe, fun, and spooky Halloween this year!
