Chilly weather and sunny skies await little ghosts and ghouls for the annual Elmhurst City Centre Bootiful Saturday event in downtown Elmhurst.
Kids and their parents can enjoy a special free presentation of "How to Train Your Dragon" (PG) at the York Theatre at 9:30 a.m. Based on the book by Cressida Cowell, this action comedy tells the story of Hiccup, a viking teenager who doesn’t exactly fit in with his tribe’s longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers. Hiccup's world is turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges him and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view.
Doors open at 9 a.m. But that's not all. Kids should be sure to wear their costumes for trick or treating at participating stores throughout downtown from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Look for posters in store windows for a treat—and don't forget to bring a treat bag.
You'll find free pumpkin patches, clowns and more all over City Centre.
The forecast calls for a high of 48 degrees, according to the National Weather Service, so a little extra bundling may be in order.
