Cold Weather Warning

Prepare for the cold, because Naperville is among many cities in Chicagoland under the National Weather Service’s Wind Chill Advisory. Throughout the weekend and even into next week the forecast calls for excessively cold temperatures. The city advises residents to bundle up, bring your pets indoors, and stay indoors as much as possible. If you do decide to step outside make sure you know the signs of frostbite and hypothermia, and dress in plenty of layers, especially covering your nose, ears, face, and fingers. If you or someone you know is in need of a warming center during this time, DuPage County has dozens of locations, including your local libraries and the Naperville Township building.


Skating Rinks Open

If you are prepared to take on the cold, you might be looking to enjoy the outdoors with this weekend. Outdoor skating rinks at Centennial Beach and Nike Sports Complex are now open after much warm weather delay. Sledding at parks like Rotary Hill will also be open.


The Laramie Project

Naperville North High School is putting on a meaningful production this weekend. The Laramie Project is the unbelievable true story of the brutal murder of Matthew Shepard, a young gay man, which occurred in Laramie, Wyoming in 1998. The PG-13 rated play can be seen tonight at 7, Saturday night at 7, and on Sunday at 2 p.m. The show is also raising money for LGBTQ+ organizations and the Matthew Shepard Foundation at the door.
