Scarecrow Stroll: One-Stop Trick-or-Treating
Visit the New Lenox Village Commons this October to view a trail of scarecrows, each created by a local business or organization. Hosted by the Village of New Lenox and the New Lenox Chamber of Commerce, this event offers a safe and distanced way to celebrate the season.
On October 31 from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., join us at Scarecrow Stroll for a low-contact way to trick-or-treat for Halloween. After strolling through the Commons to view all of the scarecrows on display, visit our trick-or-treating station located in front of the Village Hall. The Village of New Lenox and the New Lenox Chamber of Commerce will provide a bag of candy for each trick-or-treater. Be sure to wear your costume! A set for photos of your trick-or-treaters will also be available.
