Mayor Richard Daley’s Monster Mash at The Chicago Cultural Center
The 10th Annual Halloween Ball was hosted by Mayor Richard Daley & his wife Maggie Daley at the Chicago Cultural Center. The Center is one of Chicago’s famous landmark buildings in the city. The decorations for Halloween were outstanding this year with an array of pumpkins, spider webs, gargoyles, haystacks, skeletons, spooky witches and a mixture of black and blue scary lighting. Over 500 guests attended the mayor’s favorite holiday party, and most opted for costumes instead of black tie.
The purpose of the ball was to raise funds that offer free programming, and a variety of activities for children. Showcased by the Department of Cultural Affairs. The Cultural Center hosts hundreds of free events and exhibitions every year. This year’s guests had an opportunity to see the building in its grand architectural style and marvel at the size of the massive halls.
