For the editor:
Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s Chamber Biz Boo. Princesses, dinosaurs, superheroes and creatures of all kinds covered the city for a few hours on October 22, visiting the approximately 95 businesses that hosted them.
At the touch-a-truck in the NCG Theater parking lot, about 2,000 costumed children came to not only receive treats, but also enjoy games and a close look or ride in trucks of all types, including a garbage truck, transport bus and school bus. Local first responders from the Bristol Kendall Fire Department, Yorkville Police Department and Kendall County Sheriff’s Office came out to interact with the families and showed off their fire truck, ambulance, Humvee and squad vehicles . Thank you to NCG Yorkville Cinemas, first responders, touch-a-truck participants, and all the businesses that participated in Biz Boo. Special thanks to the Yorkville Police Department for downtown pedestrian safety.

The intention of the Chamber in organizing Biz Boo, in addition to planning a fun day, is to promote local businesses in the area. We celebrate this success when we hear participants say they’ve never been to a particular business before, but plan to return. We hope the families had a fun day and will indeed come back to support the local businesses that have made Biz Boo a reality.
