Denverites who need to get a little farther away from their families after Thanksgiving dinner can head to the Outlets at Castle Rock.
The shopping center about 25 miles south of the heart of Denver is opening its doors at 8 p.m. Thanksgiving. The mall plans to stay open until 9 p.m. Black Friday, according to a news release sent Thursday.
If the hunt for deals and the risk of overspending isn’t enough of a thrill, the Outlets will have live entertainment including jugglers, roving magicians, balloon and caricature artists, face painters and photo booths, a light-up dance floor synced to live DJ music, free pancake breakfast and a midnight grab bag giveaway.
