The My Costume Rocks contest is part of the Pop Rocks Halloween Spooktacular, which also features a pre-emptive safety campaign to help keep kids safe while Trick or Treating this year.This is all part of their year long celebration to mark the 35th Anniversary of Pop Rocks.You can help with the safety campaign by following their 10 Tips for a Safe and Happy Halloween...
1.Travel only in familiar neighborhoods.
2.Only stop at houses or apartment buildings that are well lit. Remain on the porch and never enter a person’s house.
3.Always travel in small groups, accompanied by an adult if under the age of 12.
4.Avoid very long costumes and oversized shoes, which can easily cause you to trip.
5.Wear reflective tape on costumes and bags so you are visible to traffic and other trick-or-treaters.
6.Walk, do not run, from house to house.
7.Always walk on sidewalks. In neighborhoods with no sidewalks, always walk on the left side of the street, facing traffic.
8.Always cross streets as a group on established crosswalks.
9.When possible use makeup instead of masks. Besides being uncomfortable, masks can obstruct a child’s view of traffic, steps, and holiday decorations.
10.Never eat candy until a parent or responsible adult can inspect it.
