Lowe’s will offer trick-or-treating alternative with free candy and pumpkins later this month

Halloween is going to be different this year. Mainly because officials around the state are urging families to follow CDC guidance, which includes trick-or-treating as a high-risk activity.

There haven’t been any municipalities that have prohibited the activity, despite the risk in the middle of the Coronavirus Pandemic, but some businesses are taking steps to help.

Lowe’s stores will offer drive-thru, curbside trick-or-treating at its stores.

The event will be held either October 22nd or October 29th from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Families can drive up to the store and will be given free candy and a small pumpkin.

The catch with this arrangement is that families will have to register ahead of time, according to CNYCentral.com. It opens up October 10th, and space is limited, according to the company.
