OKLAHOMA CITY – Fall is just around the corner, which means it is time to start planning out those Halloween costumes.

City officials announced that Oklahoma City’s official trick or treat night will be Monday, Oct. 31.

Officials with the National Fire Protection Association released a few tips to help keep kids safe while searching for their favorite candy.

When choosing a costume, stay away from long fabric. Also, if you are wearing a mask, make sure the eye holes are large enough to see out.

Give your kids flashlights and glow sticks so they can see a little easier. If you have a jack-o-lantern, use a battery-operated candle or glow stick rather than a real candle to avoid fire risks.

With that in mind, keep all decorations away from open flames and other heat sources.

Earlier this week, El Reno officials also announced the trick or treat night as Oct. 31.
