Downtown Naperville will be “Cruising Into Summer” this year

One of the tell-tale signs that summer is just around the corner is the announcement of summertime sculptures in downtown Naperville.

“From book benches to hearts to dinosaurs to sailboats…we’ve had fun and creative sculptures over the years,” says Danielle Tufano, executive director of the Downtown Naperville Alliance.

The theme for this year’s sculpture is “Cruising Into Summer”, with 16 specially designed vans dotted around the city center.

With the exception of 2020, the Downtown Naperville Alliance has been coordinating the creation and installation of the sculptures to add fun and style to the downtown central business district since 2012.

The pickup trucks will be on display from June 1 through Labor Day weekend. Stroll through the city center and admire the painted creations!

You can even download a map to easily find all the sponsored sculptures on the DNA site,

The Downtown Naperville Alliance serves as the marketing and advocacy partner for the Downtown Naperville Central Business District, comprised of 300 businesses, including stores, restaurants, spas and service businesses. For more information, visit their website.
