Fall Family Fun Day
Halloween and the fall season may feel a bit different this year. That’s why merchants of Water Street in Downtown Naperville will be celebrating with a Fall Family Fun Day on October 24.
The Foyo Plaza will be lined with various sized pumpkins for children under 12 to choose from. Pumpkins are free at the no-contact pumpkin patch.
A street chalk artist and muralist, Nate Baranowski, will be creating a fall-themed 3-D chalk painting on the plaza for families to take interactive photos. And kids can pick up free alpine hats from London Skye.
Balloon twisting, a clown, and a stilt-walker will also be part of the celebrations.
Families are asked to wear masks and maintain social distance.
Fall Family Fun Day will run from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Naperville Halloween Recommendations
On October 1, the City of Naperville released their recommendations regarding trick-or-treating this year.
The city is providing residents with printable signs to show if their homes are participating. Trick-or-treaters are encouraged to stay in small groups, wear face coverings, and maintain social distance. Those handing out candy are encouraged to wear a mask and gloves and hand out pieces separately, rather than having them in a bowl for kids to choose.
The city has no ordinance designating set trick-or-treating times.
