Plan for Safe Halloween and Día de los Muertos Celebrations

Halloween and Dia de los Muertos are upon us.  Celebrations are going to look differently this year, as California Department of Public Health is discouraging trick-or-treating, indoor parties, and large outdoor gatherings.  However, there are plenty of safe alternatives to ensure you have a FUN and safe celebration.

Whether planning a virtual costume party, touring your neighborhood in search of the best decorated home, visiting Marin Center’s Spooktacular Halloween Food Drive-Thru event, or participating in some other alternative, keep it safe by following Marin Public Health’s guidance for Halloween and Dia de los Muertos.

Marin County District Attorney issued a statement today with some additional tips for safely walking or driving around your neighborhood this weekend:

  • If you are doing car-based tours of decorations, be extra alert for other vehicles backing out of driveways or leaving parking spaces.
  • The days are getting shorter. Be visible and carry a flashlight or reflective vest if you are out at dusk or at night so drivers can see you.
  • Stick to familiar, well-lit routes.
  • Only cross the street at crosswalks or corners where it is safe. Always look left, right, then left again before crossing.
  • Watch for pedestrians and yield to them at all crosswalks.
