From ghosts to snowmen, celebrate the seasons in downtown Naperville


ALI CLAUDON, DNA assistant, and snow people

While children are dreaming up ideas for Halloween costumes, 20 snow sculptures are being decked out for the holiday season by local artists.

On Friday, Nov. 23, the Downtown Naperville Alliance fiberglass snow sculptures will make their debut with a warm welcome—and visitors can be assured the exhibit will not melt. The holiday showcase will feature an artistic display sponsored by many local merchants in advance of the Little Friends Electric Light Parade, slated at 4:30PM on Saturday, Dec. 1. (Note: The parade has been moved to the first weekend in December.)

Trick or Treat on October 28

Meanwhile, downtown merchants also are planning their annual Halloween Trick or Treat from 12-3PM Sunday, Oct. 28.

Created so children can explore merchants door to door with their parents, great gobs ‘o fun, costumed ghosts, goons and goblins will lure visitors to traditional candy treats.

In addition, families can also hop on board the Trick or Treat trolley for free rides around downtown, compliments of the Main Street Promenade and Naperville Dental Specialists. Find costumed characters, crafts and photos at Main Street Promenade, too.

Activities begin at 12PM and go until 3PM—or until the candy runs out.
