Description

You're invited to West Loop's most beloved family-friendly Halloween celebration:

WEST LOOP FAMILIES' 10th ANNUAL HALLOWEEN PARADE

This is our tenth year celebrating Halloween with friends and neighbors in a not-too-spooky gathering at Mary Bartelme Park. Neighborhood businesses will offer children fun games and activities under the park misters. The festivities end with a parade of children clad in costumes circling this beautiful park, led by a special guest.

To celebrate our 10th year hosting this event, West Loop Families is participating in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF! It’s a great opportunity to collect donations (in addition to candy) to help improve the health and wellness of children in over 150 countries. The first 500 children to arrive at Mary Bartelme Park for the event will be given a UNICEF treat box. Please have your child tote their boxes to all their trick-or-treating activities this year. Our goal is to collect $250 for this amazing organization. All boxes should be dropped off at participating locations in the West Loop neighborhood on November 1st. Drop-off locations will be announced soon.

A big thank you to West Loop Orthodontists for being the event's Presenting Sponsor and to Eyas Landing for being a sponsor of the Halloween Parade. We couldn't bring this event to the community free of charge without their generous contributions. We look forward to seeing everyone at Mary Bartelme Park on October 26th.

Happy Halloween!

After the West Loop Families Halloween Parade, families plan on trick-or-treating on Madison Street immediately following the event (5pm). It starts on Madison & Sangamon and goes west to Racine. Since there will likely be a large amount of people participating, we suggest part of the group starts on the south side of Madison Street, the other part on the north side, and both head west. Participating businesses will tape a WLF Halloween Parade flyer on their door to let you know it's ok to stop by for candy.

Please note that this year, trick-or-treating is not part of the West Loop Families Halloween Parade event and is not organized, sponsored or in any way part of the West Loop Families or its staff, Board of directors, sponsors, or vendors. We will simply help get the word out about the route and businesses participating in the candy distribution, and will offer some volunteers to help keep the children safe during the festivities.
