Pet Store Restrictions
At last night’s meeting, the Naperville City Council tabled discussion about increasing restrictions on pet stores in Naperville. Council considered an ordinance that would mirror a state law prohibiting all pet stores from purchasing puppies from commercial breeders that have received violations from the USDA. But some council members thought the city should put stricter standards in place and considered requiring stores to sell only rescued dogs, similar to a new Chicago law. No action was taken at the meeting.
Tomorrow a Thanksgiving tradition returns. The 20th annual Naperville Noon Lions Turkey Trot 5K Run will begin at 8am. The race starts and ends at Naperville Central. Road closures along the route will affect traffic and parking from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. You can find more information on the city’s website.
And Friday, the Naperville Christkindlmarket opens for business. The German style market will feature 47 vendors – 12 more than last year – as well as a Naperville souvenir mug. You can buy traditional German arts and crafts as well as food and hot cider. Event organizers are expecting at least 200,000 visitors this year. This is the second year the market has come to Naperville.
High School Football
An exciting development for Benet Academy football: fresh off their second straight state semi final appearance, it was announced this week that the Redwings will open their 2018 season playing St. Laurence at Soldier Field, the home of the Chicago Bears. The date and time of the game will be announced once the Bears preseason schedule is released. Benet defeated St Laurence to start the season back in late August.
