Family Events


Ghosts and Goblins of all ages are invited to come in costume to Trick-or-Treat outdoors at “Spooktacular” Halloween scenes created by local merchants and organizations starting at 6 pm. Then join us inside to create your own Jack-O-Lantern (6-6:45 pm). You bring the pumpkin and carving tools and we will supply a variety of materials to decorate your one of a kind masterpiece. Awards will be given for the “funniest”, “spookiest”, and “most original” Jack-O-Lanterns! The evening will conclude with a howling good show featuring Dave DiNaso’s Traveling World of Reptiles (7 pm).  This event is sponsored in-part, by the Villa Park Lions Club.  Registration is not necessary to trick or treat outdoors.  This event is held rain or shine.
