LOGAN SQUARE — Kids can show off their costumes and enjoy treats at a Halloween party at Logan Square’s largest park.
The Kosciuszko Park Advisory Council is throwing its Freaky Friday Halloween party 5-7:30 p.m. Oct. 30. The party is being held outside at the park, 2732 N. Avers Ave.
The party will kick off with a DJ spinning spooky tunes. About 5:30 p.m., there will be a costumed parade around the park. The movie “Spooky Buddies” will screen at 6 p.m.
Treat bags will be given to kids and dogs. Kids and their families will also get to roast marshmallows over a fire.
Masks are required and social distancing will be enforced.

Trick-or-treating is allowed in Chicago this year, but parents must follow health guidelines — including wearing masks and maintaining social distancing — to keep kids and families safe, officials have said.
The city is hosting a series of events and giveaways for an entire week leading up to the holiday, which they’ve dubbed “Halloweek.”
More guidelines from city officials for safely celebrating the holiday:
- Everyone, including people giving out candy, must wear a face covering. Costume masks don’t count.
- If you plan to give out candy, leave a light on or put up a sign in your window indicating your home is participating in safe trick-or-treating.
- Maintain social distancing and have hand sanitizer available.
- Keep it moving. Don’t congregate in front of one stoop or on the sidewalk.
- Make sure kids only eat candy after washing their hands when they get home.
- No in-person haunted houses, which health Commissioner Dr. Allison Arwady described as “truly spooky” due to their potential germ-spreading.
- Keep your trick-or-treating crew to six people or fewer. Sticking to members of your household or quarantine “bubble” is recommended.
- No house parties. “We are more worried about adults indoors than children outdoors trick or treating,” Arwady said.
