We are who we are 364 days of the year, Halloween is our opportunity to become whoever we want to be. Do you want to dress like a sexy pumpkin? Go for it! Wanna be a serial killer? Great idea! You want to go as the rabbit from the Trix commercials? By all means! The best part about Halloween is that just about anything goes. Gear up and head out to Chicago, where you can walk through the streets of the cities and suburbs wearing whatever your heart desires and no one will judge you. Well, except for the people who are judging one of over two dozen costume contests that will take place throughout Chicagoland from Friday, October 27 until Tuesday, October 31st. As an added bonus, you won’t have to pick fights with kids over who gets the last candy bar because only adults 21 and older will be admitted. The following locations will award the most creative and well-liked costumes with over $20,000 in cash and prizes: Lion Head Pub/The Apartment, Drink Nightclub, Lucky Star, Finn McCool’s Irish Sports Pub in Crystal Lake and Schaumburg, Moretti’s Ristorante and Pizzeria in Chicago & Lake in the Hills, Snuggery in McHenry and Alumni Club in Schaumburg.
