With today being Halloween, many area law enforcement agencies are reminding motorists to be aware for children in roadways.
While here in Tomahawk, the community held its city-wide trick or treating last weekend; many communities in our listening area will be hosting trick or treating this evening.
This means that there will be an increase in pedestrian traffic in those areas. Both trick-or-treaters and drivers should remain alert to avoid any accidents.
One community with trick or treating tonight is Merrill. The Lincoln County Sheriff’s office noted, they will be offering a treat bag. Fran the Sheriff’s Secretary will have them available to costumed kids up until 6 using the new south entrance.
Other communities having their traditional trick or treating include Rhinelander, Minocqua, Medford and Eagle River.
