2017 Clark Street Spooktacular Highlights

It was a magical day along Clark Street and Diversey Parkway in Lincoln Park on Sunday, October 29, 2017! The 9th annual Clark Street Spooktacular filled the corridor with trick-or-treaters, magicians, stilt walkers, scarecrows, princesses, superheroes, and much more! On a sunny afternoon, Clark Street hosted laughs and squeals of children (and adults) dressed as lobsters, barbies, hot dogs, astronauts, and so much more. Plus, over a dozen merchants decorated their storefronts with spooky, funny, and creative scarecrows for Scarecrows on Parade!

We hope you were out on the street, enjoying a hauntingly fun afternoon. Check out some photos below of the unique costumes and festivities found along the block and be sure to visit the LPCC’s facebook page to view all the photos from the day of neighborhood fun!

2017 Costume Contest Winners

There were a variety of costumes spotted on Clark Street this year. Everything from Wonder Woman, to Cubs players, to headless horsemen, to trolls, and even a barbie doll still in her box! The competition for our friendly costume contest was certainly fierce with visitors and neighbors bringing their best to the table; our judges certainly had their work cut out for them. With dozens of participants and only 6 categories of winners, some tough decisions had to be made, not to mention that the creativity and originality, once again, far surpassed everyone’s expectations. We’re excited to announce Spooktacular’s 2017 Costume Winners!
