Halloween is one of the best times of the year. It is when adults get to be kids and kids get to be anything they want! Make sure your Halloween is fun AND safe. Each year, there are many Halloween safety tips, which are stressed by local law enforcement agencies, and for a good reasons. Following their advice makes sure everyone has a great night, stays safe and has fun all at the same time. Don’t forget to think about “Fido’s” safety, too!
Always go out in pairs. Groups are better!
Place a temporary bracelet on a young child marked with their home phone number.
Tape glowsticks to the back of children’s costumes
Use glowstick bracelets
Substitute glowsticks in place of candles in your indoor jack-o-lanterns
Give children small flashlights to use
Map out a route, including timings, and stick to it!
Carry cellular phones or pagers
Head to the mall or school function rather than strange neighborhoods
Try to stay around a neighborhood where you know the people.
Light up your doorstep well and remove items that may cause children to trip or fall.
Keep your dogs well inside the house, away from the door, children and decorations.
Its almost Halloween. Please be aware of the small children trick or treating this Halloween night. Darkness will fall early.

Weed, CA – July 30, 2011– The Weed Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the official talent lineup, for the 1st annual 4&20 Blackbird Music Festival. Thanks to Radio Star and the Mongo Party for coordinating such headliners as One-Eyed Doll, Merle Jagger, Air Dubai, Domeshots, Invisible Animals, Haunted by Heroes and State Line Empire. Scheduled for the last week in July (Saturday, July 30th), the 4&20 Blackbird Music Festival brings together over 50 bands and musicians for a huge musical event benefiting the city of Weed, CA. by fundraising for a street clock for the downtown area.
The festival is set to kick off at 11:00 am along Main Street in downtown Weed. Festival goers can purchase tickets at the door for $5 per stage or they may opt for the “Mongo Pass” set at $15 which will give them access to all 5 stages of music for the day. Tickets will be sold at the festival as well as on the website www.4and20festival.com.
5 stages will encompass local venues in downtown Weed. Venues include: RadioStar Studios (Bigfoot Stage), Cedar Lanes Bowling Alley (City Stage), Papa’s Place (American Stage), Black Butte Saloon (Goldrush Stage) and an outdoor stage on Main at Lake Street which has been dubbed the Blackbird Stage.
The event also promises a two-city block street fair that features live music, visual art, local food, and an array of unique items. The outdoor portion of the event will be the length of Main Street from W. Lake Street to W. Division Street in downtown Weed. The street fair will incorporate local delicacies including homemade pies, organic chocolates, fine crafted items from artists near and far, as well as delicious food, cold beer, and plenty of things to do for the whole family.
During the event, RadioStar Studios will open to the public for the first time in 10 years. The historic building was once the old Weed Palace Theater, which has now been converted into a cutting edge music production studio.
The Weed Chamber, the Mongo Party and Main Street Pride’s volunteers envision a more attractive and artistic Main Street in historic downtown Weed. All proceeds from ticket sales will be directly donated to supplement the ambitious revitalization projects happening in downtown Weed. Ken Palfini, Weed City Councilman and Main St. Pride Coordinator states, “We hope the project will unify the community, its citizens, businesses and the college. Join us.”
