Skies were clear for families who participated in the annual Trick or Treat Trail hosted by Homewood-Flossmoor Park District.
The Trick or Treat Halloween alternative festivity drew many residents to Homewood’s Millennium Park on Saturday, Oct. 28. Community members strolled down the fall festive trail and collected treats and goody bags filled with toys and candies from affiliated organizations.
Tables of clubs and associations affiliated with Homewood-Flossmoor Park District ranged from the Homewood Public Library to Edward Jones Investment; all participating associations decked out their tables/booths with spooky spider webs, pumpkins, and filled cauldrons of candy spilling out for kiddos to indulge in.
Park district associate Bob Birgel dressed in the character of Harry Potter for partygoers to pass by.
“We love doing this for the kids; it’s fun seeing how excited they are to see the costumes, props, and candy, of course,” Birgel said.
First timer to the event, 15-month-old Brooklyn Orozco and her mother stopped many in their tracks with the toddler’s adorable little piggy costume and giant pumpkin bucket in hand.
Henry Vaughn, also 15 months old, sashayed down the path in a grey velvety elephant costume with mom as an accessory for folks to gush over — that they did.
Homewood-Flossmoor Halloween trick-or-treat hours have been set from 3 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 31.
