Two days and counting: Halloween is just around the corner. What do you need to know? Here's a quick rundown.
1. In Marlborough, it's celebrated on Halloween. Sounds obvious, but some towns celebrate it on different days. City police recommend trick-or-treating from 4 to 7 p.m. "Kids and parents are encouraged to wear reflective devices such as glow-in-dark bands/bracelets, glow sticks, flashlights, reflective tape or other similar products to make them more noticeable in the dark."
2. The scariest thing about Halloween? Drivers and trick-or-treaters! Nightfall is often the hardest time to see people. So, slow down if you're driving, and for the trick-or-treaters, follow some basic safety steps. Make sure children hold something or wear something that is reflective, and bring a flashlight.
