Spooktacular Family Fun

WBNA is hosting its annual West Bucktown Halloween Party on Saturday, October 29th from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. at St. John United Church-Christ, 2442 W. Moffat.  Grab the kids and join us for games, crafts and candy galore!  We’ll also have a costume parade, with prizes awarded for the best in each age group (under 3, 4-7, and 8-10).  This is one event that promises an unBOOlievable time for all!

Adult volunteers are still needed to help supervise the games and crafts table. If you have an hour to spare and are a big kid at heart (Dads, we’re looking at you!), please email and we’ll happily put you to work! Donations of bags of individually wrapped candy or small toys are also greatly appreciated. 

Thank you for helping us make this a great party for our littlest West Bucktowners!
