Masquerades are fun because they make friends into friendly strangers and strangers into crazy people wearing masks. Get into disguise with this Groupon.
- $50 for VIP admission to the Masquerade Extravaganza boat cruise ($100 value)
On October 26th, at 8 p.m., the Mystic Blue sets sail from Navy Pier, carrying passengers clad in fine evening attire and glamorous masks. They sail Lake Michigan for two hours, celebrating Halloween in style while taking in skyline views, enjoying cocktails and appetizers along with Swirlz Cupcakes, and dancing to a live performance by Chicago Cabaret Project. Guests also get to watch the Pier's famed fireworks show from the water. VIP admission comes with four drink tickets and entry into a raffle.
The event organizers at Raymi Productions like to put touch of finery into everything they do—even throwing a Halloween party. They host their evening of masked revelry, appropriately called the Masquerade Extravaganza, aboard the Mystic Blue, one of Chicago's largest party boats. The ship sets out from Navy Pier for a two-hour spin around Lake Michigan, with views of the skyline and the fireworks launching from the pier. Aboard the boat, partygoers can partake in appetizers, and cocktails.
