Halloween is coming to Franklin Street Saturday, October 26th with a full day of fun and entertainment for everyone. The day will kick off with the Monster Bash Dash - a 3 or 5 mile costumed run beginning at 8am. You can register by visiting RiseUpAndRun.com. The day continues with the Little Monster Bash on the lawn of the West Branch Library beginning at 12 noon, including family activities, hayrides and live music. Family-friendly trick or treating will begin at 2pm along the businesses of West Franklin Street and vegan/allergy-free trick or treating along Wabash Avenue of Flags.

Once the kiddos are worn out and full of candy, the rest of fun begins on Franklin with the Monster Ball Pub Crawl. Wristbands are $10 and can be purchased at a number of bars along Franklin and they will take care of your cover charge the night of the event and provide you with a safe ride home at the end of the night from Logan's Promise.
