Organizers for Hyde Park Teen Halloween are looking for volunteers for the various events that will take place on Saturday, Oct. 28, and Tuesday, Oct. 31.

Hyde Park Teen Halloween will take place on Saturday, Oct. 28 from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. The Halloween Day event at the Midway Plaisance will begin at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 31. The events were organized to create a constructive space for teens that visit Hyde Park on Halloween. 

The committee is hoping to secure 100 volunteers that will be stationed on 53rd Street from Lake Park Avenue to Dorchester Avenue on Saturday.

Activities for Hyde Park Teen Halloween include $5 horror movies at Harper Theatre, 5238 S. Harper Ave., as well as two video game trucks. Both activities will be held on Saturday.

On Halloween, volunteers and members of the community will assist in steering youth toward Midway Plaisance on 59th Street and Woodlawn Avenue. Alds. Leslie Hairston (5th) and Sophia King (4th), the city and the Chicago Park District are sponsoring a free event on the Midway for teens.

Organizers are asking that volunteers assist with transportation for Tuesday’s event.
