About the Event:
Halloween might just be our favorite holiday. This year, we’re celebrating the Spooky Season with a redux of our Edgewater walking tours, featuring special guest collaborator Sam Prestigiacomo! Sam is a lifelong Chicagoan, artist, and puppeteer whose work often involves the surreal and mysterious. Her love of local history and strange, spectral happenings ensure a special dose of eerie folklore on this 2-hour neighborhood walk!
Beginning at the Berwyn Red Line stop, the tour will cover Edgewater’s rich history, architecture, and landmarks– from its early days as a “summer home for Chicago’s elite,” to its brief role as a hotspot for automobile showrooms, to its contemporary importance to the queer community. The afternoon will end with a meal at Moodys Pub, renowned for its burgers, beergarden, Medieval aesthetic. Come learn something new about your place in space!
