Arts in the Dark parade celebrates city’s creative community

CHICAGO – WGN’s Andrea Darlas took a look at Arts in the Dark, Chicago’s Halloween parade.

The Arts in the Dark celebration is a way for artists of all ages, from all walks of life, of many shapes and sizes, to come together and celebrate diversity and cultural inspirations.

Everyone is encouraged to participate--from actors to puppeteers to costume designers and of course, musicians.

Organizers say they hope this year's theme, "Up in the Air, and Under the Sea" showcased in a lantern brigade will inspire futures artists for generations to come.
