25 Oct 3 Best Practices for Your Trunk-or-Treat Halloween Event
Halloween is right around the corner!
With that said it is essential that you help keep this ghastly tradition safe for every child. One of the most common and fun traditions is Trunk-or-Treat. These events should provide a safe environment for children to be able to dress up in their favorite costumes and go searching for candy. It is hard enough setting up an event like this, so why make it harder on yourself to try to control traffic? This can be dangerous for not only yourself but the children that are just trying to have a good time. Here are some tools to use to have the best Trunk-or-Treat Halloween celebration.
Invest in event safety control services.
These are services put in place to help ensure the safety of individuals attending events. This would allow you to have a team of experienced traffic control professionals working to make sure traffic for the event can move around smoothly and safely without putting the participants at your event in any sort of danger.
Make use of the most modern and efficient traffic equipment.
By doing this, there will be less confusion for the drivers around your event. They know what their job is to make sure you continue to have a safe event. Small dollar store cones are not going to be your best investment during an event like this. There are many distractions already for drivers in their cars that will make it very hard for them to notice a small cone showing them to not drive in a certain area. If you invest some of your project money in more modern and efficient traffic equipment, you will create a safer environment for your participants and drivers.
Spread the word about your event weeks in advance.
One of the biggest problems that can happen comes from a lack of communication with the surrounding community. If you make sure that you use tools like Facebook and other media outlets to let people know in advance that there is an event going on at a specific time, they will be more likely to change their driving plans accordingly.
