Aurora church hosts Halloween party
About 60 kids and their caregivers were treated to hot dogs, games and trick-or-treat stations during a Halloween party hosted by Aurora's Wesley United Methodist Church.
The party opened with a hot dog dinner at 5:30 p.m. From 6 to 7 p.m., games included Halloween-themed bingo and musical pumpkins, based on musical chairs. Additionally, a half dozen tabletop trick-or-treating stations welcomed children with sweets and materials for coloring.
The Rev. John Bell, Wesley pastor, donned a wig and staffed a trick-or-treat station.
According to the pastor, "(The party) was a great opportunity for kids in our neighborhood, Wesley's preschool and the AU STEM school. This is what community looks like!"
The first indoor party replaced an annual trunk-or-treat event held in the church parking lot. It was canceled twice this year when inclement weather was predicted.
