resorter notes Halloween dinner theater and more at Old World Old World Wisconsin has made Halloween a priority, offering two themed events over multiple weekends. In addition to the live Halloween Dinner Theater production of “Wake Not the Dead,” the museum will offer “Halloween Legends and Lore,” a new program conceived with family fun in mind. Robert Parker, assistant museum director, oversees the historic site’s after-hours Halloween experiences. He shared, “Our Halloween Dinner Theater shows have become an annual event for many; it’s not unusual for performances to sell out. This year we’re premiering ‘Wake Not the Dead,’ featuring ‘The Monkey’s Paw’ and works by Bram Stoker, Edgar Allan Poe, and other favorite genre authors. Guests will begin their evening with a themed, harvest meal, followed by a lamp-lit stroll to the 1874 Caldwell Farmers’ Club Hall, for a Victorian Halloween experience. “Neither a trick-or-treat experience nor haunted house scare, it aligns with our mission--and provides the opportunity to have some eerie fun. Guests will enjoy haunted walks, spooky storytelling and crafts, learn about the terrifying origins of the Ridgeway Ghost, find their way through multiple mazes, dance in an enchanted fairy circle, solve strange riddles and puzzles, witness ghostly tales come to life, and enjoy tasty and disturbing treats and drinks.” All event information is available at www.oldworldwisconsin.org or by calling 262-594-6301. The Halloween Dinner Theater: “Wake Not the Dead” schedule is: Oct.11 to 27: Fridays, 7 pm; Saturdays 5 and 8 pm; Sundays 5 pm Adults: $65; Children 17 and under: $50 (best enjoyed

Keep your neighborhood safe for trick or treat What would Halloween be without trick-or-treating? For youngsters, so much of the fun of Halloween involves scouring the neighborhood with friends in search of candy. While children may have their eyes on the sweet prize, parents may be concerned about their little ones’ safety. The United States Census Bureau says that an average of 41 million trick-or-treaters venture out every year across the country, and roughly 106 million homes are solicited for candy and other treats on this holiday. Such a high number of people out on the streets increases the risk of injury, and it can be easy for kids to get lost as well. According to Kate Carr, president and CEO of Safe Kids Worldwide, a network of organizations geared toward preventing uninten-

tional childhood injury, “Halloween is an important night for parents to be extra vigilant.” But Halloween seems to lessen one’s inhibitions, and wearing a costume and being hidden from others can encourage some revelers to engage in atypical and unsafe behaviors. To ensure everyone has a safe and fun Halloween, here are some safety tips to follow. Go in groups. Children can be accompanied by their parents while older children should be encouraged to trick-or-treat in groups. Should an emergency occur, having a group of friends around enables someone to call for help or alert an adult. Use a flashlight. When trickor-treating at night, take steps to improve visibility. This includes using reflective tape on costumes and carrying a flashlight or glow sticks

so that other pedestrians as well as drivers will be able to see children. Walk on sidewalks. Wherever possible, trick-or-treaters should use sidewalks and crosswalks. Avoid walking in the street, where the risk of being hit by a car is considerable. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says twice as many kids are hit by a car while walking on Halloween than any other day of the year. Avoid distractions. Trick-ortreaters should not be wearing earbuds or talking on a phone while trick-or-treating. They should be paying attention to their surroundings and using caution. Do not enter homes. If an adult or even a youngster whom a child does not know offers entry to the home, the trick-or-treater should not enter. Let kids know they should

only enter the homes of known friends, and even then they should only do so after getting permission from a parent. Consume only factory-wrapped treats. Well-meaning people may hand out cupcakes or marshmallow cereal treats. The ingredients such people used and the safety of these treats cannot be confirmed, so it is best to stick with store-bought items instead. Wear well-fitting shoes. Shoes that are uncomfortable or loose can cause children to fall and risk injury. Adults should drive carefully. All drivers should slow down and anticipate children darting out into the roadways on Halloween. Drive slowly and pay attention to the roads.

...and keep your pets safe during the holiday, too While Halloween can be fun for adults and children alike, the family pet might not look forward to October 31 as much as the rest of the family. When trickor-treating time arrives and the doorbell gets its annual workout, pet parents should take steps to ensure their

dogs, cats and other companion animals stay calm and don’t get too frightened or excited. Animals generally become creatures of routine, and anything that takes them out of their comfort zones can be a cause for agitation. Spooky decora-

tions hung throughout the house and outdoors present new sights and smells. The doorbell ringing every few minutes could put skittish pets even more on edge -- especially when they come face-to-face with hordes of costumed trick-or-treaters. Candy, and chocolate in particular, poses a large risk as well. Even relatively small amounts of chocolate can be harmful to cats and dogs. That’s because chocolate contains caffeine and theobromine, two different

types of stimulants that can wreak havoc on an animal’s central nervous system. Hard candies may be swallowed and become lodged in the throat or digestive tract. Artificial sweeteners are harmful to animals, too. To help keep pets safe, it is best to consider the following tips for Halloween. Keep pets indoors for the day. Animals that are frightened may run away or grow disoriented and get lost. Also, you never want your pet to be the victim of

a Halloween prank. Sometimes black cats are stolen on Halloween. Dogs left outside may be at risk for teasing and taunting, too. Don’t take dogs trick-ortreating. Although you may have a calm, well-mannered dog, the crowds in the neighborhood may excite man’s best friend, whose behavior might be difficult to predict. Also, other animals that get loose from homes when the doors are opened may provoke your dog. It’s enough to keep your eyes on your children, never mind being mindful of your dog, too. Skip costumes for pets. You may think it’s a great idea to dress your pets in costumes, but there’s a good chance your pet does not share your enthusiasm. It may stress out the animal, so avoid pet costumes. Be mindful of holiday decorations. Strings of lights, fake spider webs and other decorative items can be tripping hazards for pets, while electronic devices could pose a safety risk. Avoid lit candles in the home because cats or dogs may knock them over.
