Fall Family Fun Day

Businesses on Water Street brought Fall Family Fun Day to Downtown Naperville yesterday for the first time.

Balloon twisting, a stilt-walker, a fall-themed chalk painting, and a pumpkin patch were all part of the festivities.

“Everything feels different this year, even holidays,” said Rachel Wiencek, general manager at Trails & Tides Naperville. “So when there’s an opportunity to get together and still socially distance, but still keep that sense of community that Naperville and Water Street are such a big part of – we want to find unique ways that are still energizing and make everybody feel like they’re a part of this year and events like this are a great way to do that.”

London Skye Anniversary

And one Water Street shop celebrated an anniversary.

“Today is our third year anniversary so we have a DJ outside and we have kids doing a Harry Potter science experiment,” said Joellen Elam, owner of London Skye in Downtown Naperville.

Elam said with the turnout from this year, Fall Family Fun Day may make a return next year.
