Watch the Kids on Halloween

Suisun City residents are encouraged to show extra caution when driving through City streets on Friday night as our children celebrate Halloween.

Two great ways to celebrate the annual trick-or-treat holiday are
  • The 57th Annual Suisun City Costume Parade and Contest. Sign-up starting at 4 p.m. for the parade and judging at Driftwood and Main Street then enjoy the festive 5 p.m. trip down Main Street to Harbor Plaza for awards and candy. This free family tradition is great for all ages!
  • The Solano College Theatre is putting on "Spooktacular" - a terrific haunted house inside the historic Lawler House at 718 Main Street, between the Harbor Theater and Harbor Square. The haunted house runs 5-6:30 p.m. as a G-rated family event, and 7-10 p.m as PG-13 fun for the thrill-seekers. $5 admission, $2 if you come in costume.
Follow these tips for a safe Halloween:
  • Try to use face-makeup rather than masks to allow for maximum vision
  • Drive more slowly, particularly on residential streets, watching for children running into traffic or acting erractically
  • Provide children who are trick-or-treating with lightweight flashlights to navigate darkened streets
  • Don't use candles in displays of dried season material
  • Avoid long or flowing costumes that could pose a tripping hazard
