Make no bones about it. La Grange businesses are serious about celebrating Halloween as they pose light-hearted skeletons in front of their shops, offices and restaurants as part of a spirited celebration called "Skeletober."
This is the ninth year that the La Grange Business Association is organizing the display of boney visitors as a way to entice foot traffic to the business district. Dozens of skeletons designed to tickle your funny bone are going up for display along the sidewalks. The skeletons, seeming to be living their best afterlife, will be posed as themed characters. Last year, the display included waiters, dancers, princesses and more.
You can check out each unique skeleton by following a printed walking map which will be available at local businesses indicating where each skeleton is located. The fall promotion is organized by the La Grange Business Association and is held with support from the Village of La Grange.
People are encouraged to take pictures with the engaging skeletons and post on Facebook or Instagram by tagging the La Grange Business Association and using the hashtag #skeletober to be entered in random prize drawings throughout the month.
Check back for other spooktacular events happening during Skeletober. And be sure to partake in our Spooky Spirits Tour, beginning October 14, where you can enjoy devilishly delicious cocktails at participating restaurants in this spirited tour of La Grange.
