A spooky fun party like only Chicago can throw

It’s the scariest time of the year, but the new Halloween Gathering on the Chicago Cultural Mile is turning it into scary amounts of fun for kids of all ages.

For the first time, Chicagoland families are invited to enjoy a festival where city favorites such as The Field Museum, Art Institute of Chicago, the Silent Theatre Company and others band together for a one-day explosion of spooky fun.

On Oct. 24, cruise the Cultural Mile while getting your craft on at mask-making workshops and viewing dance and theater performances and displays of artistry. Throughout the afternoon, families can march in the children’s costume parade in Maggie Daley Park on the ribbon, take part in a workshop in Millennium Park and view a zombie-tastic performance of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” on stage.

The grand finale will be a lantern-lit parade where performers will dance, play music and entertain spectators.
