There has been a lot of people talking about Halloween and how it will work, will kids participate, how will the whole handing out candy thing work, etc, etc. Well, Walmart is trying to make it a little bit easier on area parents and grandparents as 3 local Walmart Supercenters will be hosting drive-thru interactive trick-or-treat experiences beginning nationally this week!

According to a press release from Walmart, the stores in Hastings, Lakeville, and Red Wing are "putting some excitement back into the season by deploying a team of ghosts and goblins to set up a fun and interactive Drive-Thru Trick-or-Treat experience that’s socially distanced and contact-free."

Kids of any age and their parents are invited to dress up and participate in the drive-thru events that according to Walmart's website begin on Thursday, October 15th nationally. Locally the events will be held at the Hastings Walmart on October 29 from 1-7pm, at Lakeville's Walmart on October 30 from 1-7pm, and Red Wing's Walmart on Halloween from 11am to 5pm.

Here are the store's addresses in case you choose to visit just one or go for the trifecta.
