Hidden Elves

If you’re in Downtown Naperville, you might spot some of Santa’s helpers. Look closely, they may be hiding in plain sight.

For the first time, kids are on the hunt for the hidden elves.

“A lot of people might remember years ago we used to hide bears and things like that in the window. So people loved that so much,” said Katie Wood, executive director of the Downtown Naperville Alliance. “But with the whole elf craze, we decided to have elves this year. So over 60 downtown businesses have elves hidden in their stores.”

Winning Prizes

You can find the list of participating businesses on the Downtown Naperville website.

If you find at least 30 pointy-eared fellows, you’ll be able to enter a raffle for the chance to win gift cards.

The search will go on until December 20.
