Folks walked this way to Halloween Happening


As families approached the entrance to Halloween Happening on Sun., Oct. 29, Moser Tower stood in the distance to the east, just beyond golden autumn colors and the Riverwalk leading toward Rotary Hill.

Cheers to the punsters at the Naperville Park District.

Happy Halloween! Celebrate safely.

Looking toward November and December

Veterans Day Observance and more along the Riverwalk

In 2015, crews from the Naperville Park District helped construct the Naperville Vietnam Wall of Remembrance at the base of Rotary Hill, a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. The replica “Wall” was created then and will be this year by Blooming Color. Volunteers from Naperville Responds for Veterans will help assemble the new wall, following plans underway for the Naperville Park District to co-sponsor the display at the Riverwalk Grand Pavilion, Nov. 9-13.

Save dates from Nov. 9 through Nov. 13 to visit the Vietnam Wall of Remembrance that will be placed along the Riverwalk near the Grand Pavilion. For event updates and details, visit napervilleparks.org/vietnamwallofremembrance.

Note also this year, the annual Veterans Day ceremony hosted by the Naperville American Legion and the Judd Kendall VFW Post again will be observed at 11AM for Sat., Nov. 11, a time on Veterans Day known as “11-11-11.” For 2023, kindly note that the ceremony, usually held at Veterans Park, will be held at the Vietnam Wall of Remembrance along the Riverwalk.
