Big Y has confirmed that trunk-or-treat will be set up in the parking lot that is further away from the store and closer to Route 195. It is adjacent to the Sleepy's store, as well.
As a side note, Tolland Patch will be donating its extra candy to the Tolland Fire Department Christmas tour at the end of the event. If you would like to donate your leftover Halloween candy, please drop it off at the Tolland Patch trunk and a delivery will be made this evening.
Could there be a new Tolland Halloween tradition in the works?
For the second year in a row, Tolland residents will be able to gather at the Big Y parking lot to "trunk-or-treat" as the town recovers from storm damage.
The event came to be on the Tolland Patch Facebook page, as readers dicussed whether or not it would be safe to trick-or-treat this Halloween with power outages and hanging wires still affecting the town.
"What a great way to have a safe Halloween that is fun for the kids," one reader said on Facebook. , kids wore their costumes and gathered candy from the trunks of all the participating cars.
Tolland Patch reached out to Big Y following the outpouring of enthusiasm on Facebook, and store managers generously agreed to lend their parking lot for the festive event.
The trunk-or-treat will run from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Big Y will decide Wednesday morning which portion of the parking lot will be used.
Make sure to wear your spookiest costumes and to stock your trunk with candy!
If you are attending the event, please indicate that in the comments section so Tolland Patch has an idea of how many people will be showing up!
