Mark Your Calendars for a Weekend Full of Halloween Activities and Events!

Will you be in Grand County with kids for Halloween weekend? While the Fraser Valley community is no stranger to adult Halloween fun and dressing up (see this year's Headwater's Trail Alliance Pub Crawl), we really go big for making Halloween a blast for our kids! From Grand Lake to Winter Park, the weekend is full of events (and plenty of candy). So prepare to get suited up in those costumes and hit the town(s). 

Grand Lake Creepy Crawl

Friday, October 28: 11am-1pm

Grand Lake 2022 The Creepy Crawl Halloween

Start the Halloween weekend off with Grand Lake's Creepy Crawl! Head over to the Heckert Pavilion at Town Park on Grand Avenue in Grand Lake, register for the costume contest and pick up a scavenger hunt guide, and take off to comb the boardwalk on Grand Ave. to find all 10 scavenger hunt clues. While you're at it, local businesses will be handing out candy to trick-or-treaters, so remember to stop for some candy while you're looking for clues! The costume contest will be at noon, with prizes for creepiest, most creative, best group, most clever mask, and best-dressed dog. Remember to take a quick pic with the fun Halloween backdrop before you leave!

Granby Main Street Trick or Treat

Friday, October 28: 4-6pm

Granby Main Street Trick or Treat 2022

Granby Main Street Trick-or-Treat and Scarecrow Festival is a staple Halloween event for most families in the community. Every year, businesses up and down Main Street set up tables for trick-or-treaters of all ages. Keep your eyes out for a fun fall photo booth and other activities along the way! As you cruise the strip, check out the scarecrows displayed outside of each business. This year's Scarecrow Festival theme is "Monsters on Main Street," and businesses have created their own original scarecrows to decorate the heart of Granby. Scarecrows will be on display October 20-31, so be sure to check them out even if you don't make it for trick-or-treating! 

Cooper Creek Square Halloween Bash

Saturday, October 29: 4-6pm

Cooper Creek Square Halloween Bash 2022

Come see us at our West + Main office at Cooper Creek Square during the annual Halloween Bash! Obviously one of our personal favorites as we get an opportunity to get in on the fun, soaking in all the creative costumes and energy that come with a seemingly endless flow of candy from Cooper Creek businesses, a spooky photo booth, and a DJ dance party. The kids visit each business or office to trick-or-treat in an intimate, safe environment. And it's easy to grab dinner at one of the restaurants in Cooper Creek after their treat bags are full. We'll be stocked with candy for the kids and beverages for the adults at our office on the second floor. If you make it out, stop by and say hi!

Grand Park Rec Carnival of Dancing Skeletons

A fun twist on Halloween festivities! The Grand Park Recreation Center is hosting its first Carnival of Dancing Skeletons. From 5:30-6:30, enjoy a bake sale, face painting, scavenger hunt, and spooky games. At 6:30, the aerial arts performance starts. This "spooky" performance is for all ages and for sure to inspire your aspiring gymnasts and aerial artists. The Fraser Valley Recreation District and Grand Park Recreation Center are such a gift to our community, and they keep the fun coming for the holidays!

Downtown Fraser Trick or Treating

Monday, October 31: 5-7pm

Downtown Fraser, Colorado Trick or Treat 2022

We love all the different neighborhoods, subdivisions, and housing opportunities in Grand County. From condos to homes on 30 acres, there really is something for everyone. But, we recognize that our expansive rural community doesn't necessarily lend itself to the door-to-door trick-or-treating that many of us imagine when we think of Halloween. But there are still several neighborhoods  conducive to going door-to-door on foot. One of our favorites is in downtown Fraser. Houses near Fraser Valley Elementary and the Fraser Town Hall typically go big with their decorations, and there is no shortage of candy.  One of our favorite memories of trick-or-treating in Old Town Fraser was several years ago when a group of at least 50 community members of all ages broke into Michael Jackson's "Thriller" dance in the middle of the street in Old Town Fraser. They'd been practicing for weeks, and their "flash mob" was a hit! This year, the Fraser/Winter Park Police Department will at the Fraser Community Building (on the corner of Eisenhower & Norgren), handing a treats and hot cocoa. If you're looking for the stereotypical Halloween experience, this is it! 


Monday, October 31: 4:30-8:30PM

Moffat Road Railroad Haunted Train 2022The Moffat Road Railroad Museum in Granby loves to celebrate holidays! From the free community Easter egg hunt to a visit from Santa and his reindeer at Christmas, the museum prides itself on being a place where the community can gather. Be sure to check ou the Haunted Train this year. On Halloween night, the 1905 Passenger Coach transforms into a spooky, creaky railcar, complete with ghouls and goblins. The haunted train is designed for brave 5 year olds and up), but trick or treating is available for all ages throughout the museum's grounds. Cost is $2 per person.
