An Outstandingly Spooky Reason to Visit Naperville
They're at it again, thankfully. And, if you've got some time before Halloween arrives, you might want to hop in the car and make the trip to Naperville for "Thomas Halloween 2014."
With a lighting and decoration job that is nothing short of spectacular, the folks on Conan Doyle Road in Naperville have outdone their efforts of previous years with a "Thriller" of a show that has people flocking to their neighborhood.
If you'd like to see it up close and personal, they have weeknight showings from 6-9, and weekends the show goes from 6-10. In addition to entertaining legions of visitors, the homeowners are raising money for Gigi's Playhouse
GiGi’s Playhouse is all about achievement, belief and confidence. Serving children and adults of all ages, Playhouses across the country offer 30 educational and therapeutic programs at no charge to families. All programs aim to maximize self-confidence and empower individuals to achieve their greatest potential. Our literacy program alone teaches thousands of kids with Down syndrome to read every year! Founded by GiGi’s Mom in 2003 as a single location in Hoffman Estates, IL, GiGi’s Playhouse has grown into a strong network of 16 Playhouses including the first international Playhouse in Queretaro, Mexico. Last year, over 16,000 participants benefited from Playhouse programs.
And, as a guy who has difficulty unraveling Christmas lights, not to mention keeping them lit, I find this kind of creativity crazy good.
