Greetings to ghouls and goblins alike around Naperville and beyond. It’s hard to believe, but the big celebratory day of spirits and candy is closing in quickly. We carved the family pumpkin over the past weekend complete with square teeth and sharp teeth to meet the exacting specifications of my pint-size artists. While most people associate front yard displays with Christmas, here in Naperville Halloween is fast becoming popular for plenty of front yard fright.
While I can’t say it was a scientific expedition, we stumbled across a front yard here in Naperville which I highly doubt can be topped in terms of Halloween decoration density. I don’t know this family, but I do love their spirit which is equally strong when Christmas rolls around. In the meantime, I invite you to view the two videos below I took from my iPhone featuring the display during the day and, of course, at night.
I don’t like to give exact addresses away, but will say this display is located in the Asbury Subdivision off of Conan Doyle Drive. Happy Halloween Naperville!!!
It’s Friday… it’s Fall… it’s raining, again… so the impulse moved me this afternoon to grab my camera and capture a couple of Fall images as a nice distraction form my work day. Let’s call it a little bit of a residential Naperville photo essay.
I will warn you in advance that if you suffer from arachnophobia, you might not want to scroll down any farther.
In 2006, I started this “little blog that could” about a very focused topic… a small town within a larger city of 147,000 people which I am proud to call home. As of today, the World of Naperville has received 70,670 visitors.
Naperville is the type of place which cannot be defined by one or two brush strokes, which is largely why I wanted to create a place where the Naperville story could be told via my own point-of-view. The saying holds true that you cannot judge a book by it’s cover and Naperville is no exception.
True community wealth is not measured by the average median income… it is measured by it’s people and their commitment to support and invest themselves within the community and beyond. By this measure, Naperville stands strong.
