Elmhurst among best in U.S. for trick-or-treating

by Thomas Makinney

 
Anyone who has celebrated Halloween in Elmhurst will agree with editors at The Daily Meal who recently ranked Elmhurst among the 25 best places in the U.S. for trick-or-treating.
 
The group cited the city’s community themed events, including the annual Fall Fest, held on the second Saturday in October. Kids come dressed in their cutest and creepiest costumes for pumpkin carving and painting, storytelling, pony rides, a petting zoo, and a moon jump followed by trick-or-treating at local businesses.

The city also hosts the annual Boo-tiful Saturday, held downtown at the York Theatre on the Saturday before Halloween. Little ones can participate in a costume parade, watch a Halloween-themed family-friendly movie, and trick-or-treat at downtown businesses.
 
To find the best Halloween towns, The Daily Meal studied the country’s most family-friendly towns, and then narrowed them down according to relative safety. They also factored in each town’s Halloween-themed community events, and finally evaluated each town’s “walkability rating” to determine which ones would be the easiest for little trick-or-treaters to navigate.
 
Adding to Elmhurst’s “best” factor: Many families in Elmhurst decorate their homes for Halloween, lending the perfect backdrop for young princesses, pirates, witches, and ninjas to collect candy.
 
This year the official hours for trick-or-treating in Elmhurst are 3:30-7:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 31.
 
And when the festivities are over, the city will be collecting pumpkins for composting at the Elmhurst Public Works Garage at 985 S. Riverside Drive on November 7, 9 a.m.-noon.

Elmhurst College Professor publishes her own Yoga Textbook

by Thomas Makinney

 

After years of teaching Yoga at Elmhurst College, Professor Barbara Kahovec has literally written the book on Yoga for Students.

The textbook provides students with an approachable and relatable introduction to yoga and how it can be beneficial specifically to college students in their mental, emotional, and physical states.

Kahovec found this untapped angle after evaluating the texts she’d used previously, and pinpointing what the material lacked as it pertains to her students. Applying her own personal experience and using her observations of the way college students learn, Kahovec’s text serves as a tailored guide for the student body to discover and appreciate the mental and physical benefits of yoga.

While anyone at any age can benefit from yoga, college students in particular are the perfect candidates for learning and practicing the activity.  Transitioning into the adult world and finding balance on your own has its challenges, and yoga is the perfect aide to help students on their new journey.
