Chicago Horror and Halloween Events (Part 1)

Chicago Horror and Halloween Events (Part 1)

Halloween is still a week and a half away, but Chicago is celebrating NOW. As a result, the events lists is so long and jam-packed that it's got to be split up (for the sake of sanity). Please check back in a few days for the second half (events starting after October 25th). Good luck making a choice out of all of these great options!

Highlights include: Arts in the Dark Halloween parade, Wheaton Haunted Flea Market, Nightmare on Chicago Street (Elgin), Planet 9 Film Fest, A Taste of Deathscribe (with live foley & wine), Logan Theatre's costume party tonight, Night of 1,000 Jack-o-Lanterns, and much, much more!
