Abiding by the Mayan calendar means the end of the world is near! There's no better place to be for the countdown to the world's end than Halsted. Join the Northalsted Business Alliance and Triangle Neighbors for an Apocalyptic Parade to end all others on Wednesday, October 31.

The 16th Annual Parade features a new route, stepping off at 7 p.m. from Waveland and continuing south on Halsted to Belmont.

Chicago scene stealers MaCray Huff and Katrell Mendenhall from Style Network's hit show Chicagolicious serve as judges for the legendary costume contest. The duo decides the top 3 finalists in four categories: Most Original, Scariest, Best Drag and Best Group.

All costume participants must register at Circuit (3641 North Halsted) between 4 pm-6pm the day of the event. Participant's strut their stuff on a catwalk in front of the judges, have their photo taken and are invited to stay for the pre-party before the parade sets off at 7 p.m. To be eligible for the contest, you MUST register at Circuit. There will be no judging on the route of the parade.

Miss Foozie does the judging honors for the Pet Costume Contest. Owners with pet entries register their furry friends outside of Circuit at 6 p.m.

The parade culminates in stage performances at Belmont and Halsted by Chicago Spirit Brigade, Environmental Encroachment and Chicago Fire Tribe and the announcement of costume contest winners via an audience participation vote of the finalists.

Additional information is available on www.northalsted.com and on Facebook 'Northalsted Business Alliance'.
