On Saturday, October 24, members of the Junior League of Chicago (JLC) participated in a Done in a Day (DIAD) event for Spooky Zoo Spectacular, a free, safe and family-friendly trick or treating experience hosted by the Auxiliary Board of Lincoln Park Zoo. Spooky Zoo features music, dancing, craft-making stations in the animal houses and more.
Despite rainy conditions, the event was a huge success and a lot of fun! JLC members helped with a number of tasks, including unpacking candy and passing it out to the children who attended, and assisting with crowd control.
All in all it was a great event for trick-or-treaters and volunteers alike!
