Let’s face it. Unless we are all outside on the town, in our own pods getting weird and spooky with masks on, our Aspen Halloween will not be as we know it from the past. But mark my words, nothing will keep our hearty mountain folk from going out in our alter egos, so stay on the alert for the zombies and walking dead who will be lurking in the darkest corners, and if you see them … run ….
From pumpkin patches and spooky decorations to axe throwing at the bar, treat yourself to these top Halloween events happening around the community.
Tag us with your stories and costumes. We’ll share.
