October on The North Shore of Chicago!

As I write this, it is 82 degrees. It looks like summer, it feels like summer, but today is the official first day of autumn. If you have lived in the Chicago area for any length of time, you know to be ready for anything with the weather! One thing you CAN depend on, especially here on the North Shore is a wonderful variety of events for everyone. I broke it down by Village, and will continue to update - so check back! Have an event you would like me to post? Email me at katie.hauser@bairdwarner.com.
