Family Events

Halloween Smarty Pants


Ghosts and goblins of all ages are invited to come in costume to trick-or-treat outdoors at “Spooktacular” Halloween scenes created by local merchants and organizations starting at 6 pm. Then, join us inside to participate in some not so scary Halloween themed crafts, activities and treats. You will be amazed when the evening wraps up with the World’s Greatest Halloween Balloon Stage Show presented by Smarty Pants.  There will be time after the show to take pictures with the big balloons. All registered participants will have the chance to win a grand prize of daily pool passes for the 2020 season! This event is sponsored in part by the Villa Park Lions Club. Registration is not necessary to trick-or-treat outdoors. This event is held rain or shine.

Your outdoor scene does not have to be elaborate, just make it FUN! You provide the creativity, treats and a tent if you wish. We will provide the table, chairs and electricity. Contact Mikie Kudelas at to participate. It’s sure to be a “Spooktacular” night with your involvement.  The registration deadline to reserve your space is October 12.
