Photos from Chicago's first Halloween Gathering 2015

We captured this artistic spin on Halloween at the Art Institute's first Halloween Gathering event. Here are the best shots from the festivities.

Chicago's first Halloween Gathering was a hit, as thousands spent the day at the Art Institute and Millennium Park for a day of colorful events. The Chicago Cultural Mile put on the gathering, complete with art and not one, but two parades. Early afternoon was packed with kids' activities like mask-making and a too-cute children's costume parade at the Maggie Daley Skating Ribbon. The event ended at night with a spectacular costume parade with puppets and lanterns and even a "Thriller" flash mob. See what we captured at our newest favorite Halloween event.
