Enjoy Halloween Festivities Along Chicago's North Shore!

As a Chicago North Shore Real Estate agent, I enjoy talking about the wonderful things each town has to offer! This fall has been filled with great community festivals and events, and with Halloween just around the corner, there are even more ways to get involved in your city!

Whether you live in Winnetka, Deerfield, Highland Park, Glencoe or Northbrook or are considering moving to the area, you’ll find each community has an excellent quality of life and vibrant lifestyle that you’ll enjoy for years to come! Below are just a few of the highlights of this years’ fun Halloween activities. Take a look!

Haunted Hayride

- Ghosts in the darkness, eerie noises around every corner…what creeps in the trees of Sunset Woods Park? Find out what haunts the hemlocks and lurks in the leaves. Tram rides begin at 7pm from the football field at Sunset Woods Park and depart every 15 minutes until 9pm. Steve Dahlke will be there carving large pumpkins into art for everyone to watch!
