Three Nights of Fright – Fun for Everyone!

You know you want to wear that gory, gooey fake blood and those worm eaten, slightly shredded zombie coffin clothes more than once this year…why not do it here?


Halloween in Estes Park is always a great celebration of fun, fantasy, horror and hauntings and this year, promising to be bigger than ever, the Stanley Hotel welcomes costumed party goers to both the haunted MacGregor Ballroom and the famous paranormally active Concert Hall.


Start your Halloween hoopla at the annual Murder Mystery Dinner on Friday, October 23rd.  The event features a top theater act and an elegant four-course meal in the notoriously haunted MacGregor Ballroom.  If you were to dress in a vintage ball gown, replete in beaded chiffon, baubles and bling, you’d fit right in to the old-and-other-worldly charm of this beautiful Ballroom.


Add some fake blood, fangs, claws, scales, brains, bones and shredded robes to your elegant chiffon on October 24th when The Concert Hall, famous for being the fourth most haunted building in the US, opens its doors to guests both in and out of body for the annual Shining Ball. For a bit of inspiration or a peak into costumes of the time, check out Stephen Kings “The Shining” Mini-series.


If you want your tricks and your treats too, don your gory and ghoulish garb and add a mask for the annual Halloween Masquerade Party. Costumes and reservations are required for this freshly re-designed annual adult only event.
