Since one of my favorite holidays is coming up this weekend, I thought I’d blog about some great activities taking place relating to Halloween around Evanston and other North Shore communities. First of all, it’s great that Halloween falls on a Saturday this year so that kids can actually trick or treat on Halloween. Trick or treating is open in Evanston this Saturday, 10/31 from 4-7 p.m.
The South Branch Library is hosting a costume party at 949 Chicago Avenue on Thursday evening from 6-7:15 p.m. Let your children dress up and listen to scary stories. Refreshments are provided. Call the library at 847-866-0333 for more info.
The Fleetwood-Jourdain Center at 1655 Foster is hosting a “HallaDaze” party on Friday night from 6-8:30 p.m. This party is meant for kids ages 4-12 with a magic show, face painting, and costumes encouraged! Call 847-448-8254 for more info.
Highland Park has trick or treating hours from 4-8 p.m. on Saturday. The same hours are true for Wilmette. In Skokie, trick or treating begins at 3 p.m. and lasts until 8.
If you’re in the mood to travel this Halloween and visit some haunted houses and yard displays, make sure to visit Haunted Illinois. This great Web site provides a directory that lists these attractions throughout the state. Some of the biggest haunted houses are located in Crest Hill at Statesville prison and the large Dungeon of Doom in Zion. Gurnee also has their annual Fright Fest going on at Six Flags Great America.
I hope you have a very safe and fun Halloween this weekend! Visit me online if you need any real estate advice.
