It’s not all fun and treats though, remember safety first and fun second with tips from the pros!


• Don’t approach wild animals, especially with food… cute doesn’t mean safe and their behavior is quite unpredictable.

• Fireworks are beautiful, and aesthetically captivating to a child, it makes sense that kids would want to be involved. It’s safer to take your family to see professional fireworks; don’t try the big stuff at home.

• Kids love sparklers, and they are a bit safer than your average firework, but they can still burn little arms and feet while everyone is running around. If you have a small toddler or a “wild child”, try handling the sparkler together.

• If your family and friends enjoyed all that delicious food, chances are the animals will too! Be sure to put everything inside the cabin before bed. Leaving a pack of marshmallows at the firepit could attract some unwarranted visitors.
