2021 Biz Boo! Business Trick or Treat



A beautiful, sunny October day brought hundreds of families to this year’s Chamber Biz Boo! Princesses, skeletons, robots, and creatures of all types blanketed the city for a few hours on October 23, visiting the estimated 90 businesses that welcomed them.

At the Touch-a-Truck at the NCG Theater parking lot, an estimated 1200-1500 costumed children came to not only get treats, but be treated to games and get a close up look at or climb into trucks of all types including a WW2 Jeep, semi freight truck, garbage truck, tree service bucket truck, and school bus. Local first responders from the Bristol Kendall Fire Department, Yorkville Police Department, and Kendall County Sheriff’s Office came to interact with families and displayed their fire truck, ambulance, mobile emergency command unit, and squad vehicles.



Throughout town, businesses provided entertainment, costume contests, raffles, scarecrow and decorated pumpkin displays, along with numerous activities for families to enjoy. View the Route Planner to see the list of participating businesses and their activities.

Thank you to NCG Yorkville Cinemas, the first responders, touch-a-truck participants, and all businesses that took part in Biz Boo! Special thanks to Yorkville Police Department for downtown pedestrian safety & traffic control, and to our former intern & staff member, Yari Aguado, who came out to help and take photos!

The Chamber’s intent in organizing Biz Boo, aside from planning a fun day, is to bring exposure to the area’s local businesses. We celebrate that success when parents are overhead stating they’d never been to a particular business prior but plan to return.

We hope the families had a fun day and that they will indeed return to support the local businesses who made Biz Boo happen!
