Add +

The big day is just about 72 hours away, which means that you're probably out celebrating this weekend, or getting ready for a mid-week throwdown. I saw lots of kids out in costume yesterday, and based on my early research, it looks like zombies are still big this year.

• If you haven't already, check out our list of things to do today, we have five Halloween-related adventures for you to go on, including downtown's big party, Chicagoween, and the big Punkin' Prom at Lincoln Hall, thrown by our pals at Chica-go-go. Check out photos from last year's party above.
