National Night Out

 On Monday, the City of Naperville kicked off the 2022 National Night Out a night early at the Fry Family YMCA on 95th Street. The nationwide event is hosted to raise awareness about drug and crime prevention, while strengthening neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships. The free night of family fun featured face painting, balloon animals and an outdoor showing of the film “Encanto.” Guests were invited to bring donations to benefit DuPagePads. Tonight is the nationwide celebration, and more than 40 neighborhoods throughout Naperville have signed up to take part with a variety of different events.

Dinosaur Show Benefitting Highland Park Victims

This Saturday Fox Valley Mall will host a Dinosaur Show to raise funds for victims of the July 4 Highland Park mass shooting. There will be five half-hour shows, beginning at 11:30 a.m., with the final one starting at 3:30 p.m. The show will feature life-like animatronic dinosaurs. It will include some audience participation, a Q&A session with the dino handlers, and photo ops. There will also be face painting, balloon twisting, and a dinosaur activity drawstring backpack for each child while supplies last. Tickets are $8 each and can be purchased through eventbrite. Half of the proceeds will be donated to the Highland Park Shooting Response Fund.
