Thursday, October 31st is Halloween, so there’s still time to decorate your coat, pick a costume that fits over your down jacket or be a Southpark kid and make a costume of your outerwear and winter gear! Whatever you choose, with or without costume, Estes Park is making ready to welcome everyone for Trick-or-Treating up and down Elkhorn Ave.
Between 5p and 9p the Town will close Elkhorn Ave from Spruce Drive to Riverside Drive and side street traffic will be detoured accordingly. Curbside east and west bound lanes of Elkhorn Ave will be closed from Riverside Drive to Ed’s Cantina (390 East Elkhorn Ave.) Cones and event fencing will guide pedestrians to designated crosswalks. Estes Park Police Officers will be stationed throughout town for added safety.
Some safety tips: Remember, it is getting dark much earlier so make reflective clothing and gear part of your costume. (Could be really cute! Glow in the dark anything – worm, clown, ghost, super-hero….you get the idea.) Carry a flashlight. Walk, don’t run. Stay on sidewalks and in designated pedestrian areas and crosswalks. Limit what you carry so it’s easy to get around!!
After the outdoor fun, come indoors to any one or all of several Halloween parties. Fun starts at 7p with the ladies night Halloween event and Costume Contest at the Estes Park Resort. Next you can check out Lonigans Costume Party with DJ Matt, and top off the evening at the Rock Inn at 10pm for BooGrass with Chain Station.
Whatever you choose be safe, and have fun!
