On a school night, Nicolas Ayala's curfew is usually 9:30 or 10 p.m.

"But on Halloween, it's different," he said.

Ayala, 17, is a junior at Ronald Reagan Senior High School in Doral. On Oct. 31, he usually stays out until 1 or 2 a.m., trick-or-treating and hanging out with his friends.

When Halloween falls during the week, that means a tough next day at school.

Orange, black — and now teal? Yes, teal. There are teal plastic pumpkins, paint-your-own pumpkin kits, and trick-or-treating buckets. It’s all part of a campaign to make the culmination of Halloween festivities, trick-or-treating, more food-allergy friendly.

Say you want to dress up as the world’s scariest animal this Halloween.

You don’t need fangs, claws or horns.

Parents worried about their kids’ safety this Halloween can download a free mobile app that will tell them if there are any sexual predators living in the area where they plan to go trick-or-treating.

For the past six years, Dr. Marisabel Olivera has had hundreds of kids bring shopping bags filled with Halloween candy into her office, Journey Kids Dental, in Fort Lauderdale.

The “Up and Away” campaign is underway for the Halloween Season. Health officials are warning parents to keep medicines away from their kids to avoid confusing pills with candy.
