With Chicago Halloween 2012 right around the corner, I thought you could handle (and may even desire) a little gore for your First Class Chicago Vacation Rental weekend. Chicago has a knack of doing, even the creepy, a bit classier. When you come to Chicago you just don’t get an average vacation rental, you get either a First Class Chicago Brownstone Vacation Rental or a High Rise Vacation Rental. In the same way, you don’t just get your everyday Chicago Halloween events, you get wonderful cultural experiences that will leave you at once, breathless and disgusted. Don’t pass up on these spooktacular events, some are only around for a moment and then they disappear. Chicagoween in Daley Plaza The plaza and the surrounding area are transformed into a Halloween Harvest wonderland. The plaza becomes FrankenPlaza and there is a super cool pyrotechnic display. There are live performers, pumpkin carving and decorations aplenty. Come for the Halloween festivities and enjoy the farmer’s market. October 26th – October 30th.
Spooky Boo Zoo and Harvest Festival at Lincoln Park Zoo. Lincoln Park Zoo is incredible. It was featured boldly in a previous blog about free exciting things to do in Chicago. There are Chicago Halloween 2012 events going on throughout the month for the whole family, which is a real bonus when you are staying in a two-bedroom brownstone vacation rental, at First Class Chicago and need events not only for the adults in the group, but for the little ones, also.
Edgar Allen Poe readings at Clark House Museum Since we gave you a couple fun family events, this is one for the adults. This one is fabulous and for $25 per person, it is well worth your night of haunting out. On October 27th, you will be entertained by the players from the Lifeline Theatre as they make you squirm in your seat with the most wicked Poe renditions. Reservations are required.
Haunted Tours of Prairie Avenue through Glessner House Museum. Don’t miss this Chicago Halloween 2012 event offered for your screaming delight on the 27th and 28th of this month. Get led down this street of real-life horrors. Don’t get too scared, though, you wouldn’t want to be left behind on Prairie Avenue, one of the Halloween ghouls may show up to give you a real fright. Reservations are recommended.
Haunted Hotel Ball at the Hilton Chicago. It seems like something out of a movie. You are ready for your Halloween Ball, standing at the window of your First Class Chicago High rise vacation rental, watching the darkening night skyline. Ready to show off your costume and ready to boogie. Get spooky on October 27th with music, fun, and a $5000 prize costume contest! Buy your tickets early because they always sell out. Once you check in, you may never check out!
The bottom line is that Chicago is a Halloween wonderland. Enjoy the creepiest and scariest season of the year to its fullest. I am a Halloween nut and have my home decorated like a haunted house so I am giving you some personal advice from a Halloween aficionado… Don’t miss this season in Chicago. We lend our special twist to this, the spookiest of times.
