Halloween safety is the first consideration, and Halloween path markers can help with providing a safe environment. As children scamper from house to house, they often get off the path. If the path is lighted it might just encourage safe behavior.
Since Halloween path markers come in a variety of types, it is important to pay attention to the details before making a purchase. Many are battery operated, but some require wires. Wires, especially wires designed to blend with the background so as not to detract from the decorations, can themselves contribute to an unsafe situation. Wires, especially difficult to see wires, can become a tripping hazard.
