Weekend update includes small sampling of photos from 2023 Halloween Hop


Above / Alligator? Crocodile? No, alligator!

From 10AM to Noon, Sun., Oct. 29, hundreds of families found the sidewalks that lead to downtown Naperville shops to be attractive for the annual Halloween Hop!

Kids loved giving thumbs up and high fives for a chance to pose with the downtown Naperville beat Officer Colton Parchem. Thanks to all for keeping our community safe.

Traditional ghosts, leaping lizards and first responders were among the most popular costumes along with the princesses and storybook characters.

Free rides on the Naperville Trolley provided fun times to tour downtown Naperville in between stops for treats at participating businesses. (Note! Private Trolley availability for Halloween and Nov/Dec Holiday Light Tours is located online at the “Private Charter” tab. Public reservations are made under “Book Public Tours” tab.)

Since 1998, Quigley’s Irish Pub has celebrated seasonal holidays. During the Halloween Hop, a large cauldron filled with candy welcomed trick or treaters to Quigley’s where families also gathered for lunch. Sláinte!

The trick between treats was for youngsters to navigate the sidewalks in hard-to-manage over-sized costumes. Be safe!

Now…only 26 shopping and dining days in support of local downtown businesses until the Holiday Parade of Lights steps off at 6PM on Fri., Nov. 24. Cheers!
