In conjunction with the Arts in the Dark parade, Maskerade celebrated the cultural vibrancy of the Loop in a new and exciting way. Maskerade began at the Palmer House Exhibition Hall overlooking State Street with a viewing party of the parade. Guests then proceeded to the Palmer House ballrooms for a short program followed by a night of cocktails, food stations, and great entertainment. Keeping with the Maskerade theme, masquerade masks were encouraged.
