Clark Street Spooktacular & More

Halloween is officially here people! And we are taking full advantage.

This year we decided to check out trick or treating on Clark Street. Most of the neighborhoods in Chicago have trick or treating the weekend before Halloween.

Compared to our local weekend trick or treating, I’ve got to give this event top ratings. There are places to trick or treat from Armitage to Diversey, a much larger area then our neighborhood. Also, they have street performers everywhere and bouncy houses all round. We didn’t get to the costume contest or see the live entertainment but even without it the kids had a blast!

Ben ended up eating so much candy that we had to remind him of the time he went apple picking and ate so many apples he threw up. I think candy must agree more with him because he managed to keep it and his dinner down just fine.

Twins first trick or treat.
