15 Things to do in October
This time of year is my absolute favorite, I love the clothes, the
crispness in the air, the apples and the fall veggies, the boots. It’s my
favorite! So I have compiled a list of some fun things you can do this fall here in
Colorado. Enjoy the season!
1. Fright Fest at Elitch Gardens:
This annual tradition at the giant amusement park downtown is a modge podge of
haunted houses, cheesy decorations, and the normal amusement rides. Tickets are
$50 for one day (so you know, go in at noon and stay till 10 to get your full
money’s worth!) 2. Denver
Zombie Crawl is on October 18th this year. Come join zombies on the 16th
Street Mall! There is makeup tutorials and all sorts of fun. It is older kid
friendly! 3. Historic Ghost Walk tours the Linwood
Cemetery, one of the oldest cemeteries in Colorado. Bring a flashlight and
dress appropriately for the weather: it’s a bit of hike! 4. The Unsinkable Molly Brown
at the Denver Center is absolutely a must see. It’s open till October 26th,
and follows the story of Denverite Molly Brown, her early life, and of course,
the Titanic. 5. Botanic Gardens Pumpkin Patch
is a 3-day event on October 10-12, pony rides, free pumpkins, photo ops, and
more! This is at both the downtown and Chatfield locations. 6. Cherry Creek Fresh Market
The award winning farmer’s market features a unique blend of Colorado grown
crops, artistic vendors, and live music. The final day is October 25! 7. Free Composting Class that is typically on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to
11 a.m. and Wednesdays from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. through October. Each compost
class is a hands-on workshop in the basics of backyard composting. You do have
to sign up though so go to the website! 8. Free Hamlet Tickets! At the
Betsy Stage! The play runs Friday, October 3 through Saturday, November 8, with
performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. There are three additional
performances – Monday, October 13 & 23 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, November 2 at
2 p.m. Admission is FREE,
though donations will be accepted. Reservations are required. To get your
seats, call 720-328-5294. 1133 S. Huron St., Denver. 9.
Aspen Drive- IT’S
FALL IN COLORADO! Go see probably the most beautiful leaf changing in the
country (and I lived back east for a while, I still feel like ours is better.).
The Mount Evans Byway is a great place to see them! 10. Colorado Avalanche game!
The Avalanche plays from October-April! 11. Illuminar Arerial Presents A
Nightmare in the Air based on the Tim Burton Film Nightmare Before Christmas, Nightmare in the Air uses acrobatics to
tell the story! Only $12 a ticket! 12. Chihuly at
the Botanic Gardens is probably the best art exhibit in Denver right now.
Open daily until November 30th, with a special “Chihuly at Night”
option that’s only $10 a ticket( normally $15). 13. Visit a Pumpkin patch!
There’s more than a dozen in the Metro area, and they’re great fun for the
whole family. 14. DMSC’s
Halloween Party every year, Denver Metro Social Club throws some of the
best parties in Denver for Halloween, Valentines Day, New Years, and more. This
year is no different, with the Halloween Party being held at Society( 14th
and Blake). There will be a costume party, dancing, mix and mingling, and lots
of chances to meet new people. This is a 21+ event! 15. Boo
at the Zoo is one of the best trick-or-treating
activity in Denver. Over 25 stations with candy, entertainment, and activities
for little ones. There’s also a Boo After Dark if you prefer to do

"My experience with Jim and Ion real estate has amazing. Jim is wonderful to work with. He listened to my challenges and offered suggestion on how to bring my score up to the 640 I would need for a loan to do repairs on the house I am interested in purchasing.
I have been working very hard on making a change in my finances so I can purchase a home in Bailey and it is a pleasure to feel hopeful that this will happen.
I am so grateful to Jim for listening and helping me understand the process.
