That was the message that law enforcement were stressing at the Real American Sunrise this morning.

Downtown Lima will be the site of a new holiday event that will be benefiting local children and making sure they don’t go home hungry. “Winter Walk” is a V-I-P shopping experience that will take you from store to store enjoying the sights, sounds, and smells of Christmas. The event is similar to the “Wine, Chocolate and Art Walk” and organizers have included a charitable component. Proceeds of the tickets will support “Meals to Mondays” a non-profit providing enough food to sustain a child from after school Friday until Monday morning. Organizers say the “Winter Walk” will be a unique shopping experience for the holidays.
The holiday season also translates to shopping season for some people. Thanksgiving happened to fall one week closer to Christmas than last year, so that means one less week of Christmas shopping. This Black Friday, local retailers were packed with shoppers hoping to get a jump start to the shortened shopping season.
As you're out there getting that Black Friday shopping done, keep in mind there are safety precautions you want to take while shopping.
The Lima Police has some tips for your shopping such as try and shop during the day. If you shop at night, go with someone else and park under a light near the business. Don't leave any valuables visible in your car, rather lock them in the trunk. Carry money in your front pocket and purses close to you. Report any missing credit cards to your companies immediately. Overall just be conscious of your surrounding.
