The specter of coming up with an inventive Halloween costume can be a little frightening, but with a month to plan, there's no cause for alarm... yet. If your lack of ideas is giving you nightmares, get inspired with an autumn Adventure that's sure to keep your fears at bay: an evening of pumpkin-picking and carving, with a Jack-o'-Lantern contest, games, and plenty of tasty October treats.
We'll start by heading to The Main Event's Nightmare on Clark Street, where our tricked-out team will be waiting to treat us to an evening of fun and games. First, we'll wade through an urban pumpkin patch, picking out pumpkins and carefully selecting our carving and decorating tools in an effort to intimidate the competition. From there, we'll relocate to the carving area, with lines of tables and festive autumn decorations like bales of hay, pumpkins, and gourds to inspire us for the fierce pumpkin-carving competition, with prizes for the winners.
Throughout the evening, we'll enjoy fun games (think cornhole) and seasonal snacks, including a caramel apple and tasty donuts. We'll also get a free drink ticket good for a bottle of autumn beer or hard cider, as well as a Halloween candle, ours to take home (along with our award-winning Jack-o'-Lanterns) to close out the night. Finding a great costume may be a little scary, but this Adventure is sure to be a total scream.
