Playdate brings fun for all

Hey Naperville, we’re coming to play with you!

The biggest playdate Naperville has seen is set to take over Naperville Yard Indoor Sports Complex Oct. 22. Since the city always tops as one of the nation’s most family-friendly communities, we’re hoping families from all over Chicagoland will come out to play, too.

Prepare for cuteness overload. Little ghosts, superheroes, sweet princesses and other characters have a fun new place to show off their costumes—the Chicago Parent Playdate at Naperville Yard.

Lead by Skates, the uber-popular mascot of the Chicago Wolves, kids of all ages can take part in a costume parade and showcase at 12:30 p.m. that will broadcast on Facebook Live. Parents can join the fun and dress up, too.

And that’s just the tip of the fun iceberg.

Our favorite playtime guru, The Playground Games, is bringing giant cosmic fun along with Giant Kick Darts, Giant Dual Lane Slide, a 40-foot dual lane obstacle course, Human Bowling and plenty of other interactive activities.

Our host, Naperville Yard, will have sports games, including soccer, dodgeball and tug-of-war, as well as bounce houses.

You won’t want to miss seeing Super Stolie, who is celebrating 10 years as a beloved Chicago children’s musician, and TwistiCity’s Mr. Scott with his own brand of music, puppets and a musical backpack that will have the kids up and grooving. You’ll also love first-time Playdate performer, the sweet family folk band, Cielito Lindo. We dare your toes not to tap.

Royal Princess Parties’ Little Mermaid (and your kids) also learns how to be a hero from superhero Royal Girl while Magician Rob Nacu wows.

Plus, your 2- to 7-year-olds will scream with joy seeing the WTTW Big Idea Tour Traveling Lab.

Of course, our trusted advertisers will be on hand with all sorts of fun activities for little hands while they share great info with parents. And you can take a look back at all the fun from past playdates by following the #cpplaydate hashtag on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Tickets are available for purchase here. We hope to see you on Oct. 22!
