Its that spooky time of year again and if you’re looking for ghouls, ghosts, and goblins, look no further than your local parks! This upcoming weekend and Halloween weekend are sure to be filled with festivals and fun activities in and around the parks and public areas in Boulder county.

Here’s my list of where to check out the frightful and fun fests:
  • Day of the Dead Family Celebration Nov 1, 11am-4pm Longmont Mueseum and Cultural Center
    From now leading up to  El Día de Los Muertos on Nov 1, there will be several events as well as an ongoing exhibit at the mueseum. This is one of the largest Day of the Dead celebrations in Colorado and sure to be plenty of fun with  music and dancing, sugar skull decorating, community altars, paper flower making, face painting, lady Catrina and more.
Pumpkin Patches
And almost any day from now until Halloween you can visit one of these family friendly pumpkin patches around Boulder. Many have other activities, so check their websites for more information.
Have fun this weekend!
