Don’t be scared to travel to Estes Park over Halloween! It’s fun to travel during the holidays and experience the holiday’s unique local flair, and Halloween in Estes Park is no exception. At Estes Park Condos, we want you to celebrate Halloween Estes Park style. Read on if you dare find out all of the spooktacular happenings you can expect when enjoying Halloween in Estes Park.
Where to Trick or Treat in Estes Park
There are many places around Estes Park to trick or treat, but we suggest visiting downtown for out-of-towners. Since 1983, Elkhorn Avenue has closed to traffic in order to celebrate Halloween. The shops downtown get into the celebration by decorating their store and some staff wearing costumes.
Dress up and bring the kids decked out in their Halloween costumes as you go door-to-door trick or treating the shops along Elkhorn Avenue. This longstanding Halloween tradition is not something visitors will want to miss.
Of course, there are plenty of neighborhoods in which you can look into trick or treating. However, the fact of the matter is that the doors are much closer together on Elkhorn Avenue, and it’s your best bet for scoring the most candy.
