Photos: Biz Boo! and the Halloween Egg Hunt Extravaganza
Crowds of kids flocked to businesses across Yorkville on Saturday for the annual business trick-or-treating event. A few hours later, they hunted across Beecher Park during the city's annual Halloween Egg Hunt Extravaganza.
More than 80 businesses participated in the Yorkville Area Chamber of Commerce's Biz Boo! trick-or-treating event Saturday. Additional events included a pumpkin-carving contest sponsored by St. Joseph Cabinetry & Designs and a Touch-a-Truck event sponsored by Rush-Copley Medical Center and Thompson Chiropractic Clinic.
In the evening, the Yorkville Parks and Recreation Department hosted a Halloween Egg Hunt Extravaganza. The annual event was expanded to include hayrides, a storyteller, and pumpkin decorating, as well as a search for about 4,000 plastic eggs in the dark. The event, which previously had been held at Town Square Park, was held at Beecher Park.
Feel free to add your own photographs from the events to this photo gallery.
