  1. What is the candy being handed out? It is all packaged candy from brands you would find at your local grocery store.
  2. How much candy can I get from each location? Just like Halloween trick or treating, we advise that all guests receive only the prepackaged items per location to allow everyone else to have fun during their visit.
  3. A store was closed when I arrived. Some businesses only operate for a limited time during Saturday but are happy to welcome you as guests within their operating hours. As a volunteer collaboration between businesses and the BIA, the hours of participating locations are listed above.
  4. A store has run out of treats, what now? The event has taken into consideration the number of participants through the registration process and will provide enough to hand out. However, if a store is out of candy please try the next location as sometimes unforeseen circumstances may result in different candy stock. Each store location will also help manage giveaway quantity to ensure everyone gets to have fun.
  5. I’m attending and have food allergies. Please note that although the event will be avoiding handing out anything containing nuts or allergens, it is at your discretion to properly review the ingredients before consuming
