Vendors and community partners set-up “trunks” at the West Chicago Public Library whereby they could pass out candy to local children.

The West Chicago Public Library District hosted its annual Trunk or Treat event at the West Chicago Library at 1 p.m. on the afternoon of Oct. 28, 2023.

Trunk or Treat is a community-based event where families and their children can safely get Halloween candy all the while learning about the different businesses and groups that West Chicago has to offer. Several community organizations such as National Honor Society, the West Chicago Police Department, and the New Hope United Methodist Church gave out candy to the nearly 1,300 event attendees.

“We are supporting New Hope United Methodist Church, and we are at this event to spread awareness [of the church] and to motivate the people to come to our church,” Milan Christian said, a WeGo alum who represented New Hope.

Members of National Honor Society also made appearances at the event. The organization itself had its own booth where they gave out an array of candy and informed the public of their upcoming service events, while others assisted the WCPLD by running a ring toss game on the library’s yard.

“We’re doing this ring toss game. It’s a lot of fun and the kids are winning this game,” junior Brayden Munter said.

The event was a massive success with one of the largest participant turnouts in recent years, and residents appreciated the fact that the event was organized better than the year prior.

“It’s going really well, we have seen many kids in great costumes and we hope that these people will come to our events,” Christian said.
