I want candy!

Inside Lolli and Pops, you'll find unique sweets from all over the world as well as any kind of candy you may be craving.

Some much to do, so little time!
Fall comes and goes so quickly each year! Make the most of the beautiful weather and festivities before it slips away and the Holidays are upon us.
Apple Cider Days: Everyone's favorite Fall festival returns to Dunwoody and is bigger and better than ever! This five-day festival has become a staple in the Dunwoody community during the month of October. Friends love gaming, thrill seekers do flips (literally) for the thrilling rides and couples enjoy cozying up in the crisp air and carnival lights. There is something for everyone at Apple Cider Days!
Friday Night Hikes: Experience the sights and sounds of Nature after sundown with a hike through the trails of the Dunwoody Nature Center. After the hike, relax by a campfire with hot cocoa and storytelling. This activity is fun for all ages and is BYOF... bring your own flashlight!
Truck or Treat: The last Food Truck Thursday of the year always ends with a bang! Food truck vendors and other sponsors will be passing out candy, which gives this event its name...Truck-or-Treat. Come enjoy delicious food, live entertainment and costume contests for all ages with great prizes. What a great way to get multiple uses out of those Halloween costumes and prep for the main event!
Serious trick-or-treaters know the place to be this Halloween is at the Briars North subdivision in Dunwoody. This annual tradition began with a few decorated houses but has transformed into a Halloween mecca in Metro Atlanta. Thousands venture to the area to experience the spooky (and elaborate) house and yard decor, lavish costumes and of course candy, candy, candy.
To ensure everyone's safety, the subdivision allows foot traffic only within the area and the Dunwoody Police Department is always on the scene to assist with traffic flow. The "doors open" at 6:00pm and the festivities end at 9:00pm and always take place on October 31st, rain or shine. Enter at your own risk and be sure to keep an eye out for monsters, graveyards and creatures of all shapes and sizes lurking behind every corner. BOO! Click for Details
Too old to trick-or-treat but love wearing costumes? You're in luck! Dunwoody's Eclipse di Luna is hosting their annual Monster Bash Halloween Party and costumes are mandatory! The party starts at 8:00 p.m. and will feature live DJs, dancing, over $2000 in prizes for the costume contest, drink specials, giveaways and more. Click for Details
