Autumn is one of our favorite times here in Chicago; the crisp air, the changing of the leaves, and so many fun-filled events taking place throughout the season!

Just a few of these events include the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, which draws 40,000 runners from around the world; the Great Highwood Pumpkin Festival, with thousands of jack-o-lanterns on display; and the 54th annual Chicago International Film Festival, showcasing more than 100 films.

One event we are looking forward to is the Campfire Horrors film series at Northerly Island. Movie buffs can enjoy a variety of spooky films including Carrie, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Beetlejuice, all while roasting marshmallows over an open fire!
