With all of the little ghosts and goblins ready to hit the streets in their search for treats and goodies, it's important to keep an eye out if you're on the roads.

Lots of dark costumes and excited kids will be flooding the streets for Halloween and we all know that safety isn't the top priority. Sugar and fun reign supreme.

Constable Kyle Cunningham with the Moose Jaw Police Service is hoping parents will take a few moments to chat with their kids before the evening of fun begins.

"Things like street safety, crossing the street, using crosswalks and at night time things are getting dark so it'll be tougher for motorists to see the little ones, especially if they're wearing dark costumes and don't have some sort of reflective material."

Cunningham is also asking parents to mention to their children about being respectful of property and to the people giving out candy.

The Better Together Food Drive will also be taking place around the city. Volunteers will be out between 6 and 9 pm to collect the brown paper bags filled with non-perishable food items that will be donated to the Moose Jaw and District Food Bank.
