Halloween may not be until next Thursday, but that isn’t stopping suburban bars and restaurants from celebrating early this weekend with spooky parties and, of course, outrageous costume contests. Why not extend the fun? Better to get more use out of that unique costume, especially if it might net you some cash or prizes.

Here’s where you can have a hauntingly good time this weekend and next week.


Parkway Bank Park, 5501 Park Place, Rosemont, rosemont.com/thepark/events/crawl-o-ween-2019/.

Crawl-O-Ween: 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26. Are you up for visiting seven bars in one night?
