2013 Spooktacular HIGHLIGHTS!
Well, we think the whole DAY was a highlight, but we digress! On October 26, it happened mysteriously and miraculously...Clark Street in Lincoln Park was transformed into a ghoulish wonderland! The popular, appropriate-for-all-ages, fun for all, ever FREE of charge, colorful, candy-filled, costume-loving CLARK STREET SPOOKTACULAR returned! For its's fifth fabulous time! Dare we say it's become a bit of a tradition for all of you who joined in on the fun?
For those of you who celebrated with us, you know what the Spooktacular was all about: street magicians, jugglers, balloon artists, Halloween inflatables and costumed characters strolling Clark Street, all serving to engage pedestrians in good old-fashioned Halloween fun. Over sixty (!) local businesses offered trick-or-treats to revelers, and the costumes on the children, the dogs, and their grown-up companions were truly masterful. Vending machine, princesses, pink panther, trees, baby sheep, zombies, tiny smurfs, we're looking at YOU!
The fun may have ended for THIS year, friends, but the photos, as they say, well they live ON. Check out our photo gallery and let's all reminisce about that magical day in October when we all enjoyed the phenomenon that WAS the Fifth Annual Clark Street Spooktacular and Scarecrows on Parade...!
