Halloween in downtown Chicago brings a variety of seasonal events for Mondial River West residents to take advantage of. From parades and parties to pumpkin patches and corn mazes, you’re sure to find a Halloween event that will help you make this fall memorable.

Attend a Halloween Parade

Attending a parade, such as Arts in the Dark on October 19 or the Haunted Halsted Halloween Parade on Halloween night is a great way to get in a spooky mood. Arts in the Dark takes place on State Street, while Haunted Halsted proceeds down Halsted Street. Both events are free, and there are many other Halloween parades throughout the city and in nearby suburbs.

Attend a Halloween Party at a Local Business

Living in downtown Chicago means it’s easy to find seasonal events at your favorite locations. Chances are high that your favorite restaurant, museum, or other nearby business will host its own Halloween celebration. Some noteworthy events include the Haunted Halloween Ball at the Hard Rock Cafe, Boo at the Zoo at the Brookfield Zoo, and scenic Halloween-themed cruises on Lake Michigan hosted by a variety of cruise companies. 

Pick Pumpkins and Get Lost in a Corn Maze

There are dozens of fall festivals and Halloween events that take place throughout October. Get into the fall spirit by visiting one of the countless pumpkin patches and corn mazes. Pick your favorite pumpkin, enjoy hot apple cider, and revel in the crisp fall weather as you stroll through miles of corn near the city.
