Halloween Events across Colorado
Submitted by kevin on Wed, 10/16/2013 - 10:48amHalloween has grown larger than the one day at the end of the month where children dress up in costumes and go trick-or-treating. The whole month of October becomes a fall celebration that includes pumpkins, parties, and family outings. Take a look at some of the events taking place this month throughout Colorado.
Colorado's Coolest Corn Maze
The Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield's hosts this annual adventure on an eight-acre Corn Maze that brings smiles and excitement to all who decide to venture into the tall grass. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from Sept. 13-Oct. 27 guests of all ages can enjoy the rush of winding your way through this forest of corn. Take a bird’s eye view on one of two 15 ft. towers where you can overlook all the action. There will also be horse rides and food vendors so you can make a whole day of it.
