The days are getting shorter, the Aspen trees are turning to gold, and temperatures are dropping. Fall is in the air in Summit County and for a place that loves winter, the area sure likes to take a brief pause during autumn to celebrate Halloween! Read on to learn all the sights (and frights) Summit County has to offer!
Get into the spooky mood with Frisco Historic Park and Museum’s Nightmare at the Museum on October 25th! Explore the historic museum buildings by lantern, then learn about the town's past inhabitants on the guided Cemetery Tour. When you’ve had your fill of ghosts, head to the Zombie Ball at the newly opened 10 Mile Music Hall. Live music will be going all night commencing with a costume contest for best superhero zombie attire. Win an Arapahoe Basin season pass, Peak Yoga punch cards, Silverthorne Rec Center passes and more! Purchase tickets in advance here.
Originally made up of mining towns, Summit County is not short on haunted history. Visit the Breckenridge Heritage Alliance to learn about the early days of the area. Haunted houses, tombstone tours, and Witches Brew Afternoon Tea await you at this year's Victorian Halloween! Fun for all ages, reservations are recommended.
When it’s time for a little trick or treating, Main Street in Frisco is the place to be. Local businesses open their doors (and candy bowls) to trick-or-treaters between the hours of 6 pm and 8 pm on Halloween night. Part of Main Street is closed to cars and ghouls and goblins can rest their feet and catch classic Halloween cartoons at the Historic Park Log Chapel in Frisco Historic Park.
If you’re looking for a local haunt for a cocktail or two, you’ve come to the right place. Known for hosting the last gunfight ever recorded in Breckenridge, the Gold Pan Saloon is a favorite for locals and visitors alike, with town lore believing a miner haunts the second floor, still looking for his gold. The Brown Hotel offers cocktails alongside live music, cold spots, and footsteps when no one is there, courtesy of an occupant who never left.
You’ll need a place to sort out your Halloween candy at the end of the evening, so why not do so in front of a fireplace in one of River Ridge Rentals' many luxury accommodations? Conveniently located options and offering all the amenities, book today to get spooky in Summit County!
