Halloween Helpers

Trick or Treat!
The annual countdown to "Candy Day" has begun. Officially, Halloween happens on October 31, but prior to that day, preparations and activities will be taking place non-stop!

Feeling SCARED? Do Not Fear!
If you are looking for scary or not so scary stories, spooky sounding recipes, movies, crafts, party games or costume ideas, the Des Plaines Public Library can help. Stop by to preview the books and materials on display on the 2nd floor that are available for you to check out.

With fun and safety in mind, Halloween Fun and Activities for Kids is a resource with some good ideas to view online.

Once you have finished the costumes for your family's Halloween events, the annual Des Plaines Costume Parade starts at 10:00 a.m. in the Metropolitan Square, downtown Des Plaines, on Saturday, October 24. Children who participate in the parade with Jewels the Clown and Kiwi the Clown will be given a Trick or Treat bag filled with a special prize.

Later on a 1 pm Magic Show by the great Dennis DeBondt and Spooktacular Craft making from 2 to 4 pm at the library are two events you won't want to miss!

Remember to have a safe and happy Halloween!
