What to do for Halloween

Depending on this snow situation, Halloween could be a bit ‘tricky’ this year. I’ve been trying to find fun adult activities and safe ‘Trick-or-Treat’ events for the nieces and nephews. I’ve found some good options, so I thought I’d share them with all you Denver folks.

If you’re in the Boulder area, on Tuesday, take the kiddies down to Pearl Street for the Munchkin Masquerade. I’ve not been before, but have heard it’s quite fun (and cute to see all the kids). A bunch of shops along Pearl Street will be open for kids ‘Trick-or-Treating’ – check out the website for a list of the open shops and event times.

Need to find someplace take the kids, that’s free? Try the Downtown Aquarium; they tout a ‘non-scary, safe place’ for scoring some candy.

You could always check out ‘Boo at the Zoo’ at the Denver Zoo. Do they dress up the animals? Humm …

The Ghost Train sounds like it could be quite fun, as well. The Ghost Train will be running October 29th from 10am to 4pm. It’s the regular admission price, but the kids will get to ‘Trick-or-Treat’ through the train cars and participate in various other activities setup by the Colorado Railroad Museum.

Fancy flying through the scary Halloween night? You’ve got the Six Flags – Elitch Gardens Fright Fest. Spooky!

As for the adults, various clubs, etc, are holding Halloween nights – DC10, Rise, Lotus and The Church.

Then there are the Radio station bashes, The Mix 100 Halloween Ball or the Alice 1059 Exotic Ball.

If you like screaming to the point of losing your voice, a haunted house could be what you need. Check out Frightmare, which has always received great reviews and I’ve heard, is the best in Denver. I’ll probably check this out, as it’s up in my area of North Denver.

All you pet owners out there, your pets want to participate in Halloween, too!

The Muttropolis shop, at the new 29th Street mall, in Boulder, is holding a ‘Howl-O-Ween Pooch Party’. They are offering out ‘treats’ and your beloved pets can get spooky photos taken. A ‘percentage of the proceeds’ will go to the Boulder Humane Society.

There is also the Broomfield Omni Interlocken Hotel ‘Howl-oween’ event for doggies and their ‘parents’. All the proceeds of this event will go to the Boulder Humane Society.

Then again, you could always just do the traditional pass-out-candy or take your kiddies around the neighborhood, ringing a thousand doorbells.

Beware of the Wednesday morning tummy aches!

    Thoroughly self serving comment: http://www.geekswhodrink.com is giving all players in costume a one point headstart. So if you’ve got a full squad that’s six points without answering a single question.

    Monday at The British Bulldog (2052 Stout St.), Tuesday at Nallen’s (1429 Market St.) and The Exchange Tavern in Westminster.
