LUMA8 and the City of Chicago were delighted to produce the Upside Down Halloween Parade as the Grand Opening of Chicago Halloweek 2022! The event took place from 12-3pm  in Washington Park on October 22nd! The Upside Down Halloween Parade was sponsored by Blommer Chocolate Company, who provided goody bags, thousands of free costumes and even a job fair for attendees interested in working in their local factory.

The 2022 Arts in the Dark Halloween Parade was produced by LUMA8 and the City of Chicago and served as the Grand Finale of Chicago Halloweek 2022! The parade was sponsored by Barry Callebaut and took place on Saturday, October 29th from 6-8pm on State Street moving south from Lake to Van Buren.  Major support was provided by Chicago Loop Alliance.

Both of these events were designed to celebrate Halloween as the "artist's holiday," and featured cultural organizations and artists from all over the city.

We hope you can join us again next year to celebrate Chicago's enchanting and diverse cultural community - so mark your calendars for our 2023 events!

If you'd like to be involved as a participant, sponsor or volunteer at either of these events, please contact Sharene Shariatzadeh at sharene@luma8.org.
