Where to find Last Minute Halloween Costumes in Lake County

Gee whiz, I’ve been thinking about Halloween for the most epic costume for three months, but it kind of just crept up on me. I’m pretty sure this year I will go as a 1908 Cubs player…in black and white.

fright-fest-charactersWe’ve all run into this predicament. With Halloween only being two days away you need to come up with something fast. I’m more of the homemade kind of guy, but sometimes you need to get out there and buy one for the sake of the part-tay.

Even though Halloween is on a Monday, your sure to celebrate this weekend. Also in case you didn’t see it, here are the hours where you can take your ghosts and goblins for trick or treating. Some are not on Monday the 31st. When you find your last halloween minute costume, check out the last weekend of Spooks and Spirits!

There’s no shame in that. Lake County has plenty of places when you’re going to your Boo Bashes, Halloween walks, Haunted Houses, Corn Mazes or just good ole fashioned bars.
