When you think of Halloween you probably have some fond memories of your childhood.

Luckily for you this is Chicago and we know how to get down. Check out this list of great ways for adults to spend Halloween this year.

The 2nd Annual Haunted Halloween Ball | Navy Pier Grand Ballroom

As a sinister veil cloaks the space, watch closely for what may appear through the dark. This is one chilling affair presented by ChiTownEvents.com you won’t want to miss. When the sounds of October’s orchestra begin to call upon the creatures of the night, don’t miss your chance to dance with the walking dead at the Haunted Halloween Ball at Grand Ballroom.” More info here.

Haunted Halloween Ball | Congress Plaza Hotel

“Haunted Halloween Ball combines elements of a lavish VIP nightclub and lounge experience, with the exclusiveness of a luxury hotel gala, and the terror and chills of a haunted house. The moment you enter Congress Plaza Hotel, you will be directed to the massive 20,000 square foot ballrooms of the 122-year-old hotel, which has been transformed into an abandoned hotel run by zombies.” More info here.
