Hundreds of children filled Division Street again for one of the most fun-filled, family friendly events in Humboldt Park. The 10th annual Haunted Paseo Boricua is giving new meaning to Halloween in our community. Businesses opened their doors to costumed treat-seekers of all sizes, but this was no average trick or treat activity. Several landmarks like the Casita de Don Pedro was converted into a haunted cemetery. Batey Urbano had their usual scary basement and La Cosecha Fresh Produce Market handed out healthy candy that included a Ritz cracker with a delicious avocado and chocolate topping. Yum, Yum!! This year’s Haunted Paseo also had a skate and bicycle park zone on Campbell Street. Ciclo Urbano and Barreto’s Boys and Girls clubs did a small parade with their custom decorated bikes along Division Street to the delight of many.
Division Street Business Development Association wants to thank its many partners for helping put on a great and safe event including: Alderman Roberto Maldonado 26th Ward, the Puerto Rican
Cultural Center, Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos High School, Ciclo Urbano, the Chicago Park District, 72 Block By Block, COMCAST and all of the volunteers who helped make this a wonderful event.
