To the Editor:
Thank you to all who took part in this year’s Yorkville Area Chamber of Commerce Biz Boo! Princesses, skeletons, robots, and creatures of all types blanketed the city for a few hours on Oct. 23, visiting the estimated 90 businesses that welcomed them.
At the touch-a-truck at the NCG Theater parking lot, an estimated 1,500 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. 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 the Yorkville Police Department for downtown pedestrian safety.
The following businesses sponsored Biz Boo!, who, along with our advertising partners, enabled the Chamber of Commerce to organize this as a free, fun event for all businesses and the community. Thank you to AXT Jiu-Jitsu, Brenart Eye Clinic, CASA Kendall County, Cornish Chiropractic, Davey Tree, Flight Tasting Room & Bottle Shoppe, Gateville Law Firm, Heritage Cabinetry & Design, Heritage Woods of Yorkville, Record Newspapers, Kendall Printing, Little Learner Children’s Academy, Luxe Classic Kitchens & Interiors, Mike More Miles, Old Second National Bank , Pet Supplies Plus, Roadhouse 47 Country Bar & Grill, Rush Copley Healthplex, Sensei’s Scentries, Silver Fox Bar and Grill, Stephen Alan Salon, Swanson Real Estate, The Home Depot, The Ice Cream Place, Virtues in Motion Dance Studio, Yorkville CrossFit, Yorkville Pinz, YPAC, WSPY FM-107.1.
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 we overhear participants 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.
