Your Guide to Halloween Events in Denver from Doug Phelps

In Active Lifestyle Living, Buyers, Homeowners, Sellers by Doug Phelps

This is a festive time of year with Diwali being celebrated this past Monday on October 24th, Dia de Muertos on the 1st of November and this being Halloween weekend as well!  Not to mention in a few short weeks we’ll be in the holiday season and wrapping up the end of the year.  This week I wanted to take a bit of a diversion from real estate topics and kick off Halloween weekend with a list of fun things to do.  Halloween starts the kick off for the holiday season and if you and your family are looking for something fun to do, I’ve compiled a list of activities. I’ve included options for families as well as adults only. If you’re newer to the Denver area, this list may especially be helpful!  Be sure to look up or call for details on time, date and costs and also be sure to dress warm, or in layers as Halloween night can be chilly!

What to do around Denver to celebrate Halloween:

  • Event: Trick or treating at the Denver Zoo / Boo at the Zoo
    • Who: Family friendly, fun for all ages
    • Details: The Denver Zoo is a great place to spend Halloween.  Open all weekend, the Denver Zoo offers regular admission as well as a specialty event called Boo at the Zoo that’s great for families and offers trick or treating and encourages costumes!
