Free, Fun, Safe Halloween Activities Abound
More and more free, safe Halloween events are added for children and adults in Broome County.
Some of those include a haunted house at United Methodist Homes Hilltop Campus that runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for its final day October 31.
Brooms might be landing along with planes at the Greater Binghamton Regional Airport as children are welcomed for a 5th year from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Residents, staff and volunteers have been "getting their spooky" on at United Methodist Home's Hilltop Campus in Johnson City. An awesome Haunted House with many themed rooms is open to the public, free from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Halloween day.
Several "Trunk or Treat" events are planned around the region. Check your neighborhood for signs advertising times and locations. One of those events, which also includes a Haunted House is at the Schorr Family Firehouse Stage and Goodwill Theatre at the corner of Willow Street and Corliss Avenue in Johnson City. The candy and scares flow from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Halloween.
Parents and guardians should remember to make sure children's costumes are easily seen by motorists, kids can see easily where they are going and don't present a trip hazard.
Children should only visit homes in neighborhoods they know, should be accompanied by an adult and wait to have all treats checked by an adult before indulging.
Police are out in force through November 4th looking for drunk and dangerous driver and patrols are always stepped up on Halloween night looking for pranksters getting out of control with their tricks.
