DENVER (KDVR) — There is always something to do, especially during the spookiest time of the year.
Denver’s weather is looking slightly frightful, which is on par for the holiday. You might want to wear a long sleeve under your costume, the temperatures could get as low as 20 degrees overnight.
The weekend starts with some light snow on Saturday and continues into Sunday. Nevertheless, it’s still Halloween weekend and there are plenty of things to do.
FOX31 picked out some of the top events this weekend.
Events: Oct. 27 – Oct. 29
Get in the holiday spirit by watching “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” Except at Boettcher Concert Hall, it’s with a live symphony in the background. The big screen comes with dialogue, singing and effects from with the Colorado Symphony.
- Oddities & Curiosities: Festival of Frights! – Oct. 27-28
Walk through the interactive experience with (or without) a drink in hand. You’ll see the haunted forest, phobia room, cursed graveyard and of course, a library of all things odd. The event has a live DJ and tarot card readings.
- Emma Crawford Coffin Races and Festival – Oct. 28

This untimed, fun race will take place at Number 38. It’s an open course so the roads won’t be closed, but you will get a free beer at the end of it.
