We’re just one day away from Halloween, which means tomorrow trick-or-treaters will take to the streets!

We wanted to find out where the most popular places are to trick-or-treat this year, so we asked you, the viewers, for some of the best spots to hit the streets. Here’s what you had to say!

In Colorado Springs we’re told Montebello Dr. between Pearl and Meadowland is a popular and busy spot! Get ready to see lots of other trick-or-treaters out there. 21st and Cimarron near Old Colorado City, the Old North End at Tejon and Wood and the Northgate area are all great neighborhoods that viewers recommended.

In Fountain, viewers said Countryside Grove off of Jimmy Camp Road is a good place to start. As well as the neighborhoods off of Mesa Ridge Parkway.

In Pueblo, if you’re staying on the north end of town the neighborhoods off of Eagleridge Blvd and the Riverwalk are recommended. On the south side, you told us the El Camino area was a good bet for some great candy!

We also spoke to the Sheriff’s Office about some tips to follow to ensure a safe Halloween.

Experts recommend that parents go with their kids, but if you do feel your kids are old enough have a route planned out and make sure they go with a group.

Kids, we know it’s hard, but don’t eat the candy while your out trick-or-treating. Let your parent have a look at it before you dig in.

Drivers, watch out for kids while you’re on the road.

“As we know this has been one of the deadliest years as far as traffic accidents and pedestrians being killed,” said Jacqueline Kirby with the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office. “We want to make sure our drivers out there are paying attention [and] driving slow.”

Kids, never go into someones home, garage or car for candy and make sure you stick to the side walks!

The best advise yet? Bring an extra bag! We’re told you need one for all that candy.
