The city of Yorkville got into the Halloween spirit on Saturday, Oct. 26 for the annual Biz Boo Business Trick-or-Treat, sponsored by the Yorkville Area Chamber of Commerce.
Dozens of businesses and community organizations participated in the event, which stretched from north to south along Bridge Street (Route 47) and from east to west on Route 34. Several spots served as "concentrated trick-or-treating" locations, where multiple businesses jointly handed out treats.
Chamber member Mike Shepard, who attended with his daughter and a friend, praised the event, which supports businesses in the Yorkville community.
"This is a great event, we love coming out, and the kids have fun," Shepard said. "Supporting local businesses, that's what it's all about."
In downtown Yorkville, families made their way to shops including Crusade Burger Bar, Southbank Original Barbecue and YPAC to take part in games and activities - and to get some candy.
"It seemed like a really good idea to check out the businesses and let the kids have a little bit of fun," Oswego resident Greg Henk said.
Trick or treating hours on Halloween in Yorkville will run from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m.
