I am interested in hosting a Candy Post. What does this entail?

A Candy Post can be as simple as a folding table with candy on it, or an elaborate pop-up tent decorated with Halloween themed music. It is up to you. We just ask that you supply your own candy. Please note that electricity will not be provided.  

Please register your Candy Post here.
