Safe Kids Success

Thousands of kids waited in line on Wednesday night for their chance to score a cauldron full of candy at Newschannel Six's 17th annual Safe Kids Halloween event.

More than 20 Texoma businesses and groups turned first floor rooms at the Grand Hotel into haunted hideouts and handed out candy and treats to kids as they walked by.

While kids appreciated each Sweet Tart, Snickers and Sour Patch Kid, parents were happy with the safe environment. Rene Mills said, "It's safe, and it's where we don't have to worry about the kids and what they get is all safe." James Cartwright added, "You never know these days what they're going to wind up doing or getting into or something like that. It's a whole lot safer place for them." 

Parents also told us how much they appreciated local businesses spending the time and money to provide this environment. Mills said, "I think that just says that our community cares about our children and the families here in this area." Charles Houston said, "Well it's a lot of fun for the kids and we support the businesses and support the community."
