If you wanted to visit downtown Elgin on Saturday night, you first had to go through white containment tents and be scanned by people clad in full-body biohazard suits -- to make sure you hadn't been "infected." Of course, you also had to sport a red stamp on your hand proving you had paid the entry fee to "Nightmare on Chicago Street," Elgin's annual Halloween party. The zombie apocalypse-themed event featured live musical entertainment, food vendors, beer and liquor booths, and was attended by crowds covered in all manner of blood and gore, along with dozens of volunteer zombies wandering around in a daze.
