Halloween is just days away, and Wallingford businesses are gearing up for a big night of handing out candy on Oct. 31. Wallingford is ranked as the third best neighborhood for trick-or-treating in the city, and Judy Ayers from the Wallingford Chamber of Commerce board tells us they aim to take back the #1 spot.
Ayers says, “Each year Wallingford Center has opened its doors to the neighborhood for trick-or-treating. This year, the Wallingford Chamber is organizing the 45th Street business corridor, from Stone Way to I-5. 65 businesses (and counting) are inviting trick or treaters to stop by.” Businesses will be handing out candy from 4 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, and will have orange “Trick-or-Treats Here” signs.
The beginning of Wallingford Center’s 6th annual fall food drive starts on Oct. 31, and benefits the Family Work’s food bank. The drive lasts through Nov. 18, and donation bins will be located inside the east entrance of the Wallingford Center.
