Where To Find The Hottest Chicago Halloween Events

If there’s two things we love, it’s ChiTown and Halloween. Chicago’s a real fine city, and we’re not just saying that because it’s in our name. The city’s just full of history, culture, and great food. Couple those qualities with our favorite holiday and you’ve got yourself the makings of an epic night out.

And what’s not to love about Halloween? I mean, who doesn’t love free candy from strangers? We sure do. On the surface level, it would seem that Halloween is just a day for the kiddies. But in reality, there’s definitely an older crowd for the holiday. And candy really isn’t the main focus on Halloween for this crowd. That doesn’t change the fact that it’s still a pretty sweet holiday. Especially if you’re looking for another excuse to party while wearing a silly costume (and really, isn’t any excuse to do either of the two a treat for anyone?).

Halloween Changes With Age

The way we see it, the enjoyment levels for Halloween fluctuate depending on age. It’s pretty interesting when you think about it. As a young kid, let’s say up to about 10 or 11, you love Halloween. Being able to dress as your favorite cartoon character, going door to door getting free treats. The only thing that could even slightly ruin the day would be if you had school too. Then as you make your way into adolescence, Halloween becomes a silly thing you used to like when you weres a kid (Yes, we see the irony of 12-year-olds calling 10-year-olds “kids”).

Then, as a teenager, you may or may not get back into the festivities, most likely in the form of a house party at whoever’s parents-aren’t-home’s house. You most likely aren’t trick or treating, or getting into costume. And if you are, you’re probably chaperoning your little sibling, or better yet, getting paid by someone to take their kid trick or treating. Or if you’re a delinquent, you’re partaking in a lot more tricks than treats, if you catch our drift.

Then as an adult, you start to get back into Halloween. I mean there’s no more trick or treating (unless you have kids, but that’s more backseat trick or treating than anything else) but that’s not so bad since you could just go buy candy. But why does this holiday suddenly find a resurgence among older crowds?

Well, to put it simply. Now you’re at a point where every day is filled with seriousness and responsibilities. So any reason to indulge in silly antics is embraced with open arms. You come full circle and it’s almost like being a kid again, psyched for Halloween. You spend weeks (maybe even months) picking out or making your costume. And the best part, Halloween becomes a week-long event, it’s exciting again!
