We're in a new and growing development. Last year we had between 40 and 50 TOT's. This year we have 60 full size bars on hand, but I think we're gonna buy some more just in case. I wish we could get 500+ at our place!!
I wish! I bought two bags and I know I'm going to have leftovers. Last year we had 12 kids. This my husband and my 2nd year in a new home, and while the neighborhood is quiet and great, there aren't a lot of young kids around. AND we live in a cul-de-sac at the end of a pretty long road, so most kids just pass by. BUT the plan is to slowly build an awesome haunt and eventually build a reputation so those TOT's will make the trek.
We get more and more each year, as more people have gotten to know about our display. We've gone from like 3 toter's the first year, to around 45 last year. Not sure how many will show this year. I am making up treat bags now.
I have around 1100 individual pieces candy; some fun size, some minis. We get around 500 kids so enough for 2 pieces per kid plus some extra. If things slow down and we still have candy, I'll be very generous.
We bought a ton of the stuff last night. Mostly minis. Last year we bought more fun size stuff than I could imagine actually giving out and we totally ran out of candy by 9 or so. Personally, I like an idea somebody put out there as a joke on another thread of individually wrapping M&Ms to make it last longer!
I had an 18 gallon storage tote filled to the top with candy - used all but one full bag and a few stray pieces of candy. I think it was about 50 to 60 pounds of candy.
I've figured it was about 750 kids, roughly speaking.
Already picked up a couple bags of Laffy Taffy, a few bags of Skittles, and a dozen boxes of Ring Pops (22 per box) to start next years hand-out stash.
(and yes, I do test stuff before I put it out for ToT's - anything not up-to-snuff gets round filed, so no one gets bad candy)
We all do a lot of work to make Halloween magic happen inside and outdoors. It would be a shame if we get low turnouts this year because of COVID-19. Conventions all across the country are being cancelled due to COVID-19 fears. People are becoming afraid of large gatherings. For those of us...
Hello fellow Haunters!
I've decided to start a thread in order to share my garage haunt build for Halloween 2020. We purchased our home in August of last year and really only had a couple of months (really weekends) to put on our show. It was a huge success but I wasn't quite happy given the...
