Happy October!

October is a month of leaf kicking beauty and holiday activities that kids and families love….And costumes! Is there anything cuter than kids in costumes? Three personal favorites spotted in the last week are; the kids with superhero capes riding scooters around the court, a soccer star at practice in black sequins with tutu and a dad out for a walk holding the hand of his scooting dinosaur. I digress.

Let’s get started with a few Naperville events that showcase the best of October!
