Halloween events in Steamboat Springs

Ryland Kissell checks out the masks at Costume Party in Sundance at Fish Creek Plaza. The business has stocked up on Halloween costumes and is expecting things to get pretty busy the next few days as All Hallows' Eve draws closer. And there will be plenty to do this Friday as locals celebrate the holiday in Steamboat Springs.

— In Steamboat Springs, Halloween is not only a holiday for kids, but adults, too. Dressed in every disguise imaginable, residents take to the streets — or rather, a street.

For more than 30 years, Lincoln Avenue has been a site where goblins, ghosts, princesses and characters of every kind roam from door to door gathering candy.

“There is nothing like it,” Mainstreet Steamboat Springs Manager Tracy Barnett said. “People just get so creative and go out of their way to come up with new costumes every year.”

For kids and families looking for a Halloween-themed event, the Downtown Stroll offers trick-or-treating for all. Ages 6 and younger are encouraged to take part in the stroll from 5 to 5:30 p.m., and ages 7 and older are welcome from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Candy will be supplied by merchants around town in addition to costume contests.

Check out these other Halloween events for the whole family:

• The Chief Theater will be hosting a Scream Contest in partnership with the Steamboat Springs Arts Council at 6 p.m. Friday. Free candy also will be handed out in the lobby while the bar will be open for the grown-ups. After the stroll, there will be a free family movie in the big theater and a free horror movie for adults in the small theater.

• Looking for a haunted house for a spooky night of festivities? The Colorado Mountain College’s Sky Club will be hosting “X-Screamboat” (Extreme Screamboat) from 6 to 10 p.m. Thursday with a $15 general admission and again Friday for Halloween.

And for adults looking for a watering hole compatible for their ghoulish behavior, check out these places that are hosting special Halloween events:
