Remember when Halloween was a holiday that only kids had fun on? Yeah, me neither. This year’s celebration is not one to miss out on. Just because you’re late in planning doesn’t mean that Halloween 2015 has to be a bust. We’ve got you covered!

THE PARTY:

Halloween 2015 at Atomic Imaging
Saturday, October 31st, 2015 (8:00PM – 3:00AM)
1501 N. Magnolia Ave., Chicago IL
(North Ave. & the Chicago River)

This year’s party is Mad Max themed, but come in whatever costume you’ve got! Explore the Tombs at the Haunted Ice-Factory — 5-building warehouse compound — and experience Chicago’s largest, longest running and most highly rated Halloween event. This is nothing like your typical nightclub or hotel party – it’s got the vibe of a house party, except it takes place in a haunted factory. Tickets are still available, and start at around $85 for all-inclusive food and drinks!


THE COSTUME:

Chicago Costume Company
Lincoln Park: 1120 West Fullerton
Portage Park: 4727 West Montrose
