SOLD OUT – Halloween Parade

Friday, October 23
6 pm to 9 pm

Bust out those costumes early and head to Cantigny for a unique event.  Because traditional trick-or-treating is not possible this year, we’re having a car parade!

Tune in to 88.9FM while driving through the Park for announcements and a spooky soundtrack!
