Halloween Happenings

The fun is creeping up as Halloween is upon us. Recently happy haunters hit the town to celebrate the holiday.

Hundreds of little ones flooded the streets of Naperville for downtown trick-or-treating. Stores and restaurants passed out treats and goodies ahead of the holiday.

Those looking for some lower calorie fun headed to the Riverwalk Grand Pavilion, where the Naperville park district was hosting their annual Halloween Happening event.

“We’ve been doing it for over 30 years and it’s a free event that we open up to the public and what we do is we set up many games and play areas for the kids to come out and enjoy the afternoon for a day on fun and enjoyment for Halloween,” said Naperville Park District Program Manager, Fred Gusel.

Others celebrated by raising the “ruff” at Two Boston’s Howl-o-ween parade.

Canines in costume took to the streets of downtown for some treats and goodies handed out by local area stores.

“It’s great for all the small businesses in town, it’s great for our business. We’re more than happy to host it because this is what we do, we love dogs,” said Two Bostons Team Member, Jessica Kraft.

The best-dressed pups participated in a costume contest while others enjoyed bobbing for hot dogs and a puppy piñata drop.
