Scare your pants off at 13 Terrors at Theater on the Lake, the annual Halloween event that involves evil clowns, a spinning vortex, crazed costume ball and creepy mausoleum filled with the undead. There's also the McHenry County Conservation District’s 24th annual Trail of History. The two-day event is a hands-on, interactive living history experience.
