BROWNSVILLE - "Are you excited about trick or treating? Yup. What are you going to dress up as tonight? A ghost."

School’s out and the little ones are ready for the main event trick or treating.
Cameron County Sheriff Omar Lucio wants to make sure all the kids are staying safe.

"Kids are full of life they are full of energy before you know it they can get across the street so you keep a close check as far as that goes."

Parent Brita Carraco says she always stays close to her son while they are trick or treating.

"We just go on our street where we live they know the neighbors and they know us, and I usually walk with the kids so I know where there it's at."

Carraco adds that Halloween is about sharing.

"It’s important the kids don't get the sugar overload so what we do is go treat or treating early and when we come back it's still time to also open the door for trick or treaters and share the candy we collected, again so we don't have such a big pile."

The sheriff also wants to send this message out to all drivers.

"People outside driving should be aware of the kids out tonight and to drive carefully give the pedestrians the right of way even though they may run across the street.”
