Halloween in Winnetka and the North Shore!

Halloween in Winnetka and the North Shore


On a particularly mild Chicago afternoon, I grabbed my bike and camera and rode around the North Shore. I snaked by through Kenilworth, Wilmette, Winnetka, and finally Glencoe. I hadn't set out to photograph Halloween decorations, but they were (as always) so fun I had to!

North Shore residents take their holiday decorating seriously. Halloween decor starts showing up in the third or fourth week of September. And Christmas/Hannukah decorations are often displayed before Thanksgiving and can stay up for months afterward. 

So here's my array of the local Halloween scene covering all tastes: scary, sweet, gory, whimsical, and funny.

I love your pictures! What a great idea to get a bike ride making pictures. Happy Halloween!

It wasn't a bike ride as much as pedal, stop, shoot, pedal, stop, shoot . . .!
