Halloween Window Painting at Lincoln Common

October 24, 2020 | 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Looking for any spooky, socially distant Halloween activities the whole family can enjoy right here in Chicago? Our friends at Lincoln Common are stirring up some ghoulish family fun by hosting a frighteningly festive Halloween Window Painting Event on October 24th - 25th. 
Located in the heart of Lincoln Park, Lincoln Common will transform its storefront windows into spooky blank canvases for kids (and kids at heart) to paint their own Halloween mini-mural. Costumes and creativity are encouraged, and face masks are required. 
Friends and family of all ages can register up to four people per window (cost is $10 per group, advanced registration required and includes a take-home paint set). Upon check-in at Lincoln Common Retailer, Play2Day (Boutique Childcare located at 2369 N. Lincoln Ave.), groups will receive their own painting kits to create a spine-chilling spectacle, plus parents can partake in exclusive discounts to participating Lincoln Common retailers. 

  • PRIOR TO EVENT — Register your spooky squad for a time slot event here. Time slots are broken up into two-hour windows to maintain social distancing. Slots are open to maximum four per family or two adults, but attendees can reserve multiple slots at $10 each.
  • DAY OF — Grab your creepiest costume, your favorite face mask, and arrive at Play2Day (2369 N. Lincoln Ave.) for check-in. Attendees will receive a paint kit and an invite to exclusive discounts at participating Lincoln Common retailers, and will be directed to your designated window. 
  • TIME TO PAINT — At your designated window, paint whatever Halloween scene your nightmares desire! At the end of your session, pack up your paints to take home and continue the fun. A grand prize will be awarded to the most creative window at the end of the weekend.
