Halloween safety tips focused on cold temps

Local News

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — We have one day until trick-or-treat activities kick-off, and during that time, we’ll see record low temperatures in the valley.

We can expect extremely cold conditions for the first half of Halloween day, with temperatures dipping into the teens, and possibly even single digits.

Luckily, evening temperatures should warm up a bit, settling somewhere in the 30s.

The 30s are still pretty cold to be outside standing around, so we spoke to the owner of a local costume shop that has been in the business for 20 years. The owner shares some of his best tips for surviving the holiday and staying warm.

When you are buying a costume for the kids… its gonna be really cold, consider buying a size too large, that way they can wear a lot of clothes underneath the costume. you dont want the little ones getting cold.

The KREX 5 storm team also suggests trick-or-treating from a vehicle or at least having a vehicle close by. This will allow kids to warm up a bit, as they gather the goods.
