Pickup Truck Sculptures Will Cruise Downtown Naperville This Summer

This summer, you’ll want to “truck” around downtown Naperville to check out some new additions. The vans are the Naperville Downtown Alliance‘s “pick” for their special summer sculptures this year, to match the theme, “Cruising Into Summer”.

Annual tradition

It’s a tradition that has continued since 2012, with a variety of themed sculptures along the way.

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

Sixteen vans

Sixteen of the trucks will be scattered throughout downtown Naperville, setting up on June 1 and then leaving town after Labor Day weekend. The sculptures are popular for photo ops and also make for a fun scavenger hunt. The Downtown Naperville Alliance will have an online downloadable map available with all the locations, so you won’t miss your ride… so to speak.


And part of the fun is seeing all the different themes worked into the decor of the sculptures. Traditionally, companies sponsor a sculpture and then do the decorating. With colorful pickups lining the streets, downtown Naperville will be the perfect place to park it this summer.
