La Crosse Northside resident builds candy chute for safe trick-or-treating

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – People are finding unique ways to hand out candy on Halloween.

Including one La Crosse Northside resident, Jason Jones.

He set up a 6-foot long candy chute on his porch.

Jones got the idea from people in other communities and decided he’d give it a shot.

He got ahold of a local carpet store, which happily donated cardboard tubes.

He took home ten, cut them in half, and invited others to stop by and pick one up.

Jones said no one should have to miss out on Halloween traditions.

“I always remember Halloween, this is the best time of the year for me. I would go out with a pillowcase, not just a little pumpkin. We wanted candy. I remember going out with my friends, my sister. The goal was to fill it up, run home, dump it, and go out again. I want to keep that spirit alive,” Jones said.
