It’s getting spooky in the windy city, and just in time for the season we have our newest and seasonal tour edition to offer.  Our very own pay-what-you-like GHOST TOUR for a thrill-filled look at the haunting history of Chicago. If you can’t make it to the tour, there are surely some other exciting Halloween-related events for young and old to look forward to:

  • Visit the National Museum of Mexican Art and check out their Dia de los Muertos exhibit that will be running in October.  On October 19th bring the kids to decorate their own sugar skulls. It sounds weird, but it has been very popular.
  • On October 25th, you can celebrate Halloween with your kids at the Clark Street Spooktacular.  There will be music, activities, and jugglers at this FREE event.
  • If you are looking for some adult fun on Halloween there will be a Halloween Parade on October 31st at 8pm in Boystown. Take the red or brown line to Belmont and walk two blocks to Halstead.
  • Hello Michael Jackson fans! There will on October 29th at 12pm, there will be a Michael Jackson impersonator doing “Thriller”at Daley Plaza.

+++Happy Halloween!+++
