I live in a dark, wooded townhouse subdivision in Burke Centre, there are no streetlights on our street. What is the best way to provide lighting for kids to see safely? One neighbor plans on putting out tikki torches but I am not sure I want to put out something with real "fire". As an end townhouse that is next to a set of very dark steps leading up to the next street I am afraid kids and/or their parents will trip on the flagstone path or dark wooden steps.
I would reconsider "live fire" because it could be a hazard to a costume that may be large or contain external parts not close to the body. As for appropriate lighting; electric lanterns, flashlights and glow sticks all can be utilized for better visibility. Also be extra careful in dark areas for hazards like branches and roots. Those may be difficult to see with a mask on in the dark.
