Venture out to Main Street in St. Charles for an annual festival promising fun for all ages. “Finding its inspiration from the past, this festival will offer the vintage charm of Halloween in the 1910s through the 1930s, to the historical rituals and customs brought to the holiday by the Druids and Victorians, to the ethereal atmosphere depicted in American ghost stories and Brothers Grimm fairy tales,” according to the Greater Saint Charles Convention & Visitors Bureau website. “A little silly, a little macabre, but all in fun, Legends & Lanterns will allow visitors to get in the ‘spirit’ for All Hallow’s Eve.”
While you’re there, don’t miss an opportunity to stroll down Main Street and pop inside a local restaurant or café. Experience the charming local shops, too, like Main Street Books and The Candle Fusion Studio, where you’ll find just what you need to stay cozy at home during the chillier months.
