HARRISONBURG -- Trick-or-treat safety is important, and the community on Franklin Street feels as safe as ever. Many feel that knowing the community and those in it a simple and important step to safety.
"You get to meet all the neighbors, and the kids are obviously having a good time. It's something my kids loved when they were little, it's something I loved, all those many years ago, when I was little," said Marilyn Tuner, a retired part-time employee at Rockingham Memorial Hospital. "I feel very safe in this neighborhood, and I hope the kids do too, and as you can see, they come with their parents. There aren't kids out wondering alone at all, so I think it's absolutely fine, and I am glad their families do too."
"[I was] just driving around to see where I could take him, and so I felt pretty comfortable walking around with him," said Tysean Tucker, a student taking his younger brother to find candy.
"Basically any house that has its light on, I feel comfortable going right up to the door with no problem," said Josh Dove, owner or Whitesel Music.
