Each Halloween almost every Little Village child has walked down the 26th St. business district to “Trick or Treat” at all the stores. Halloween is a big deal for the children in Little Village because it is an occasion for them to dress in disguise and receive treats. Every “character” imaginable, scary or funny, is represented in the Halloween parade. Many parents participate by dressing-up in costume to carry the youngest of “trick or treaters”. The parade of children is hectic, but fun to see.
LAST YEAR, 1,000 children in costumes visited the Little Village Community Council to receive candy, popcorn, or watch a scary movie and listen to the Halloween “Monster Mash” music. This year the LV Community Council, 3610 W. 26th St. will continue the tradition with an added Haunted House for bigger kids.
The Council wants the kids to have fun and be safe. Vamos a tener una “Casa de Espantos” para los ninos en La Villita. Free admission. Admision gratis.
