Join Naper Settlement for a howlin' good time at the museum's new Halloween event, "Howlin' at the Moon," for adults 21 or older, on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 22-23.

Guests can come dressed in their best Halloween costumes and enjoy spine-chilling performances, creepy exhibits, local cuisine, beverages, and live music from 5-10 p.m.

 

Attractions will include fire dancers, a sword swallower, a one-of-a-kind liquid light show, a contortionist, and more.

There also will be a costume contest both days of the event with prizes awarded to the winners.

A stroll around the museum's property will reveal a Dark Art Gallery featuring artwork by Bryn R. Gleason, a Chicago-based intaglio printmaking artist.

The Halloween-themed vendors Dead End Doll Factory, Ursula Naturals, Brook Crossing Candle Company, and the Astrology Center will sell items in the Moonlight Market.
