    Make no bones about it! La Grange has plenty of spirit this month when 30 friendly skeletons lounge in front of local businesses beginning Oct. 21. The fun, life-sized skeletons are decked out in different themes and sponsored by merchants as a kick off to the Halloween Walk and Halloween Hunt to be held on Saturday, October 29. 

    Visitors are encouraged to take pictures with the lively skeletons this month and post on social media by tagging the La Grange Business Association and using #skeletoberinlagrange to be eligible to win prizes.

    The Halloween Walk is a parade of trick or treaters that begins at Cossitt School Playground and is led by the Greater La Grange YMCA. Line-up starts at 9:30am on Oct. 29 and the walk is held 10am - noon with treats provided by dozens of local businesses. At noon, the YMCA will offer kids crafts and pumpkin bowling on the lawn near the fountain at Village Hall.

    From noon - 5pm, several merchants are hosting the Halloween Hunt, a search and find challenge around La Grange. Children may pick up a special passport for the hunt at Anderson's Bookshop, 26 South La Grange, or at the trick-or-treat line-up. Merchants will hide a special Halloween item in their stores for children to find and check off their passport. Once completed, passports may be returned to Anderson's Bookshop for a chance to win one of several prizes. 

    Special seasonal activities and merchant discounts will be offered during the Halloween Hunt. Additionally, adults who spend at least $5 in at least five participating locations on October 29 are also eligible to win prizes.

    A map of the Halloween Hunt, skeleton exhibit and list of participating merchants can be found here shortly.
