Naperville Park District presents SCARE-illon Concert and Halloween Happening this weekend


To celebrate Halloween, the Naperville Park District will host two free events for the community this weekend.

Begin with the SCARE-illon concert from 7-8PM  on Sat., Oct. 27, at the Moser Tower located at the base of Rotary Hill along the Riverwalk, 443 W. Aurora Ave.

At the SCARE-illon (a.k.a. Millennium Carillon by day!), Naperville City Carillonneur Tim Sleep will play both classical and popular Halloween-themed music, including selections from Phantom of the Opera and Harry Potter.

The concert also features the Élan Dance Company, who will dance to the live music of the SCARE-illon as part of their performance. Élan Dance Company is a program of the Naperville Park District and is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency. In keeping with the Halloween theme, the Naperville Park District will be handing out treats to trick-or-treaters at the event.

The audience is encouraged to bring blankets or folding chairs and may view a live video feed from the playing cabin to a large monitor on the plaza in front of the tower. Parking is available in the parking lot on Aurora Ave., at Centennial Beach at 500 W. Jackson Ave., or at the Naperville Municipal Center at 400 S. Eagle St.

Halloween Happening is Oct. 28

Halloween Happening takes place from 1-4PM on Sun., Oct. 28.   The family-friendly event (costumes invited but optional) is for children ages one through ten and their parents with a variety of fun activities, games, and candy.

Halloween Happening will take place at the Riverwalk Grand Pavilion, located along the Riverwalk just west of Centennial Beach. Parking is available at Centennial Beach at 500 W. Jackson Ave. or in the spaces opposite the Grand Pavilion.
