Though I would personally prefer to cross paths with Jordan and his whiskey wagon on Halloween, some parents, especially those with younger children, may prefer an easier, hassle-free trick-or-treating option to just get the job done. For those families who like to keep the holiday short and simple, but still sweet, Wallingford Center is your best bet.
From 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Halloween night, all twelve shops will be participating in the free, family-friendly festivities. The center is always festively decorated, and part of the fun is their custom-made backdrops for some great photo opps.
It’s also their annual food drive for Family Works, so you can give back to the community by bringing a donation of nonperishable goods.
