UPSIDE DOWN Parade

Saturday - October 23, 2021

12pm-3pm

Washington Park

 

We are delighted to be celebrating the 2nd Annual UPSIDE DOWN Parade in Washington Park! This year's parade serves as the official opening of Chicago’s Halloweek Program – but instead of driving through a tree-lined street enjoying the stationary performance groups, you can walk through!

The event will take place on Russell Drive and will feature dance performances, circus acrobats, musical groups, sports mascots and more.  Don’t forget to wear your Halloween costume – and enjoy a complimentary goody bag courtesy of Blommer Chocolate Company, Mars Wrigley and other local candy companies.

This is a free, family-friendly event, but let us know you’re attending by signing up on our Facebook event page: HERE

IT’S BACK!! We are thrilled to announce that the Arts in the Dark Halloween Parade will return to State Street as the Grand Finale of Chicago’s Halloweek Program!

Now in its seventh year, Arts in the Dark is a magical evening parade that celebrates Halloween as the “artist’s holiday.”  The event draws together world-renowned institutions like the Joffrey Ballet, celebrated Chicago organizations like Lookingglass Theatre Company, important programs like After School Matters and aspiring artists in every field.  It is a dazzling production that delights the audience with unique floats, spectacle puppets and creative performances – all set against the backdrop of historic State Street.

Enjoy an early or late dinner at one of the Chicago Loop’s fantastic restaurants and find a spot along the route to watch the parade of Chicago’s dynamic cultural community.

Millennium Garages is the Exclusive Parking Sponsor for Arts in the Dark.  Their lots are conveniently located off the parade route on Michigan Avenue, with access points at Washington and Van Buren.
