Celebrate Halloween Safely with Chicago Halloweek

Halloween is not canceled, according to Illinois officials. The City of Chicago has recently announced that while Halloween is different this year, families will still be able to celebrate safely. 

On Oct. 26-31, Chicago Halloweek will offer a variety of spooktacular events with a mix of in-person and virtual options. Some of the Halloween-related events include at-home activity bags, Boo Fest at the Museum of Science & Industry and the return of the Arts in the Dark Parade.

This year, the Arts in the Halloween Parade will introduce a “backwards” event. On Oct. 31, attendees will drive along Washington Park to see stationed performances from their cars. Admission is free, but you must register in advance for one of three time slots.  

Here are some other events not to miss during Chicago Halloweek:
