Step Right Up!  It’s about to get Wicked in Whiting...

Join us for the third annual Wickedly Whiting Festival on October 14th! The festival runs from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. and includes food vendors with many fall comfort foods, a beer garden with live bands and many specialty brews, and a family stage offering a reptile show, magician, story time, costume contests and more!

COME ONE, COME ALL to Whiting on 119th Street as it's transformed into a freak show. We've got clowns, freaks and maybe even a few geeks roaming through town. Check out our aerialists and freak show artists along the midway!

Run if you dare! Sign up for the Monster Dash 5K here! Can you make it to the finish line with all of your flags? Run through beautiful Whiting Lakefront Park with Lake Michigan as your backdrop. Don't get to wrapped up in the scenery though...you'll want to escape the monsters that will be trying to take your flags! It's Friday the 13th after all, creatures of all sorts will be coming out to play...you're not scared, are you? Registration begins at 6:00 p.m. Run begins at 7:00 p.m. Register by 10/6 to be guaranteed a t-shirt.

Scare addicts can shop the Market of the Living Dead and Tomkat Comics Vendor Village for all types of Halloween, sci-fi & horror items. Breakfast with a monster begins at 9:00 a.m. at Winey Beach Café (call 659.1466 for reservations). Get “Trapped in a Room with a Clown” and solve riddles to get out, before they get you! (Featuring the Clowns from the FOP Haunted Hayride.) This is the only event of its kind in the Region, celebrating everything Halloween! It’s about to get wicked in Whiting!
