By Shannon Robinson for Denverite

Halloween is creeping closer, Denverites!

Time to don the best costumes and enjoy a night on the town with other ghouls. There are multiple bar crawls to mingle with spirits (and enjoy some spirits too).

Elitch Gardens is hosting the annual Fright Fest so be sure to grab tickets before the park closes for the season.

Looking for less thrills and seeking a more chill autumn adventure? Try the Larimer Rooftop Farm Tour or the popup Urban Pumpkin Patch at the Golden Triangle Farmers Market.

Whatever you do, keep things terrifying.
