In their best costumes, kids and kids-at-heart took part in the annual Woodridge Halloween Party last October 31, 2018.

This spooktacular event, a decade-long tradition hosted by the Woodridge Park Homeowners Association, featured an unlimited house-to-house trick-or-treat activity and a thrilling Horror House at the covered gym.

With the theme “Into the Woods,” homeowners went all out to transform the usually serene neighborhood by decking festive jack-o-lanterns and jaunty-looking witches and ghosts. Also scattered around the village were impressive art installations inspired by Asian folklore.

Let’s take a look at some of the event’s highlights:
