    Please join APT WGLC at 5:30 on November 1st for a fun-filled haunted evening! We’ll take a casual walking tour of the River North area of Chicago and make stops at five notable sites to learn about their history and alleged haunted connections. We’ll make a brief stop along the way where you can grab an adult beverage if desired, and we'll end the tour at another local bar for those who’d like to stay longer. We anticipate the walking tour with included bar stop will take approximately two hours. This program is limited to the first twenty registrants and APT WGLC members have a two-week priority registration period. Attendance for members is free, there is a $5.00 charge for non-members.
