This time of year in Chucktown means enjoying the sunny weather at the beach by day and spook-tacular Halloween fun by night. This weekend’s got a healthy mixture of both: from multiple outdoor concerts to haunted houses, it’ll be sure to help you transition from summer to fall without too much seasonal depression.
