Highland Park Adults Spent $138,063 on Halloween Last Year

Adults are stealing the Halloween show from kids. See how much you and your neighbors spent on costumes last year!

Americans spent $512.1 million dollars on adult Halloween costumes last year. Yes, you read that correctly.

Check out Patch's roundup of Halloween events in Highland Park.

That number comes from Crain's Chicago Business and their recently released map showing spending on adult costumes for Halloween in 2011. It's more than 100 million more than was spent on kid's costumes last year.

It seems like the adults are getting into Halloween even more from the kids.

Highland Parkers spent a total of $138,063 on adult costumes. They're close to the top of the list, but the number one spender in Lake County goes to Barrington, which spent a whopping $231,836.

Vernon Hills, by comparison, spent less than $80,000. Fort Sheridan spent $81. And even with its Highwood only spent a little over $12,000.
