Halloween Happenings in Naperville

Naperville celebrated Halloween with several events over the weekend. On Saturday, Turning Pointe Autism Foundation held their Pumpkin Race at Rotary Hill. The program’s students and members of the community participated in a friendly competition racing pumpkins after decorating them and setting them up with wheels. On Sunday, dinosaurs, princesses, witches, and more descended on Downtown Naperville’s Halloween Hop. Over 70 downtown businesses handed out candy and other treats. And finally, Trick-or-Treaters took to Naper Settlement, where 16 stations handed out candy, toys, and other treats.
