The Naperville Junior Woman’s Club again will host its Annual Trick or Treat at Safety Town from 10AM-2PM on Sat., Oct. 20. Safety Town is located at the southwest corner of Aurora and River roads.
Organizers alert parents that the time for this long-standing autumn tradition has changed for 2012. Again, note this year’s four-hour event will run 10AM-2PM, Sat., Oct. 20.
This widely popular gathering for children accompanied by their parents or responsible adult offers an opportunity for children ages 2-10 to enjoy the fun and friendship of trick or treating in a safe environment. A short lesson on safe trick or treating will be taught to the children.
All children who attend should be dressed in Halloween costumes and ready to have a great time. The cost is $1 per child, plus at least one non-perishable food donation for Loaves and Fishes food pantry in Naperville.
Safety Town’s Annual Trick or Treat event is a cooperative effort between the Naperville Junior Woman’s Club, local corporate sponsors and teen volunteers.

Halloween Happenings through October 31
Scroll PN’s Community Events Calendar located in the drop-down on the navigation bar under Community calendar. Loads of local events just for kids are planned next weekend, too. For instance, from noon-3PM Main Street Promenade and downtown merchants will host fun with treats for kids in costumes.
Next Saturday, families can join McGruff to take a bite out of crime during the first Crime Stoppers Running Scared 5K.
Though there is no city ordinance regarding Trick or Treating, parents have long worked together to adhere to common sense, taking children door to door between the hours of 4-8PM on Halloween Oct. 31. Thank you.
