The Y – It’s a spectacularly sweet and spooky season


The crisp autumn air, the changing leaves, the ever-controversial pumpkin spice lattes—it’s fall y’all! And as always, we’ve got lots of fun, sweet, spooky, and family-friendly programming for the Naperville community.

On Sat., Oct. 29, the Fry Family YMCA’s annual Trunk or Treat celebration is back from noon to 2PM. For a small fee per family, kids can make their way around the Fry Family Y parking lot and collect their favorite treats from tricked-out vehicle trunks. The event is open to the public and is also free for any participants who decorate their trunks and pass out candy. It’s one of our favorite, spookiest, sweetest (literally) and hands-down cutest events of the year. Who can resist caramel apple pops and kids in costume?

Also this month, we’re officially cutting the ribbon on the newly renovated locker rooms at the Fry Family YMCA. If you’ve been in recently, you’ll have noticed the upgraded facilities and the bright, fun new look and feel. Improving our spaces to support the Naperville community is important to the future of the Fry Family Y, the Safe ‘n Sound program, the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago, and our communities at large. This work is just one step in that direction, and we thank our members, friends, and communities for their support and patience as we made the updates. 

As part of the locker rooms’ official “grand re-opening,” we’re hosting a celebration and ribbon-cutting event on Tues., Oct. 25. For details, stay tuned to our social media pages or sign up for our e-newsletter at ymcachicago.org.

And don’t forget about all of our fun and enriching programming throughout the fall and year-round. Right now, we’ve got youth sports and rec, youth ballet, swim lessons for all ages, group fitness (did someone say paddleboard yoga in the pool?!), “brain boot camp,” financial literacy courses, and much more. 

As always, for more information about YMCA programming in Naperville, including sports and rec, child care, and seasonal events, please visit us online at ymcachicago.org/fry and ymcachicago.org/safensound or stop by our front desk.
