Halloween is in a week already; what do you have planned? The pressures of costumes, parties, and haunted houses can get anyone stressed this time of year. We found four things to do before the month is up, that you and your family can enjoy together; stress free!
The 29th Annual ‘Boo in the Zoo’ will be hosted this Saturday and Sunday at the Denver Zoo! Visit their website for more information, at www.denverzoo.org. There are over 25 trick or treat stations, guaranteeing plenty of candy for the kids. In addition, with zoo admission there will be other family oriented activities including a hay maze and animal demonstrations! For a more scary interpretation, stay for the ‘Boo after Dark’, when the becomes spooky at night from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The freaks come out at night at the Denver Amusement Park. The Elitch Gardens host ‘Fright Fest’ during the weekend nights. Ghost, goblins, and zombies wander aimlessly through the park looking for their next scare. There are haunted houses and rides that will entertain you well into the evening. Visit http://www.elitchgardens.com for tickets and information, before it’s too late!
One of Stephen King’s inspirations is found in Denver at the Stanley Hotel. This historic location gave King the ideas behind the thriller, The Shining. Don’t have chills yet? Stick around to hear stories of ghost sightings and take a tour of their underground tunnel!

Once out of the winding fields, participate in family, fun events such as: hayrides, pony rides, and delicious, fall food.
