Tricks and Treats of Halloween in Dowagiac and everywhere else.

At the Dowagiac, Michigan Children’s Halloween Parade this weekend, we got a sneak peek at what most of the area children will be wearing this year for Halloween. Basically, a lot of Disney Frozen characters and Teenage Ninja Turtles. We even saw a few of your furry friends — the pets — dressed as pumpkins and hot dogs? I know this seems like a strange topic for your Insurance Agency to bring up, but, according to the National Retail Federation, 71.5% of Americans plan to celebrate in a spooky fashion, that is a record number of Americans buying Halloween costumes. This finding tells us at Mahar Insurance that even if you are not the dress-up for Halloween type of person, you will still most likely plan on decorating your house or lawn in some way, shape or fashion.

In fact, it is estimated we as Americans will spend $8 billion on Halloween this year alone. With all of the money spent on this day, you will want to preserve your investment as best you can. And, that is where Mahar Insurance comes in. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), Halloween is one of the top five days for candle fires. Keeping Halloween fire free is easy if you just take a few precautions.
