We think that Halloween should be fun for all kids, so this year we our designating our Little Pumpkins lot (the former REI parking lot in Blue Back Square) as an allergy-friendly area.  All vendors will be distributing non-candy items so that no child with food allergies feels left out of the fun!  As in previous years, this area will also have hands-on activities geared toward children ages 0-3. 


Many thanks to our Little Pumpkins sponsor, West Hartford-based

Fun for All Foods, who have created a line of food products

completely free from the Top 8 Allergens!  

Come and enjoy a safe area for families looking to skip treats or food allergens altogether!*

*Please note that while vendors will not be distributing candy in this parking lot, Stroll attendees may be bringing in/eating food in this area.

Little Pumpkins Lot | NEW this year: Designated Allergy-Friendly Area

The former REI parking lot (off of Raymond Rd) will again host the Little Pumpkins area, featuring activities and giveaways tailored to children ages 0-3, although 4 and 5 year olds are welcome, too! This lot will be closed off to cars and is perfect for keeping a close eye on the littlest visitors.  The Moms & More tables will host sensory bins, while local nursery schools will have booths that feature crafts, activities, and of course, giveaways! NEW IN 2019:  The Little Pumpkins Area will be a designated allergy-friendly area. Giveaways will be limited to non-candy items so your little ones can collect goodies without worrying about allergens in food products.
