From parades to merchant trick-or-treating, there are frights and delights from Lincoln Square to Naperville — so many, in fact, you might need a second bag to carry your haul. Here are our picks that are guaranteed to get your little ghouls and goblins running for more, more, more!

Burling Street in Lincoln Park

Burling St., located between Fullerton and Diversey, blocks off block party-style on Halloween night, offering visiting trick-or-treaters a night of fun and candy galore. Your best bet is to hop a bus, or jump on the “L” as evening parking can be tricky. This is destination trick-or-treating at its finest; it’s particularly fun to get a glimpse of the homes all open and welcoming to the sounds and little feet of kids on the spookiest, silliest night of the year.
