Halloween in Chicago

Halloween in Chicago

Welcome to THE CAPTAIN’S BLOG. This is the place to go for The Captain’s tips on where to drop anchor and find the best things to do and places to go in Chicago!

The night crawlers are creeping, masks disguising, blood-curdling screams screeching and the cutest little pumpkins in the patch are running around! Halloween night is celebrated across the nation but in Chicago – it’s a whole season of festivities! The city-wide celebration of haunted houses, parties and costumes is about to begin and we have your Ultimate Chicago Halloween Guide:

First, the largest tourist attraction in Chicago, Navy Pier, is hosting its own haunted house called The Fear now through October 31! Beware Halloween fans, this is haunted house is not for the timid. Designed Zombie Army productions, it will have an aggressive adult-themed haunted house at night and a low scare, lights on attraction during the day; children 12 and under MUST be accompanied by an adult. For more information on The Fear, visit navypier.com/.

Chicago Children’s museum is also transforming into a Children’s Halloweeum! This perfect Halloween Town will have play spaces, pumpkin painting and Monster Mash boogieing during the whole month of October!

The Chicago History Museum is leading all kinds of haunted tours! Go on a Paranormal Pub Crawl, explore death during the Creepy Cemetery Tour or be apart of the Devil in the White City on the Eerie Bus and Trolley Tour! See them all here.

Daley Plaza has turned into Franken Plaza! Franken Plaza offers plenty of free entertainment, trick or treat candy, arts & crafts, storytelling and more, including kids costume contests with special prizes!

Have fun out there!
