Another Wild and Wonderful Halloween in Aspen
The lives of local Aspenites tend to revolve around three things: events, holidays and snow. While snow has and will always remain a sacred, holy experience, a curious thing has happened to the other two. The events have morphed into holidays (e.g. "And a happy Food and Wine to you, sir!") and the holidays have turned into grand events. Halloween marks that sweet spot where holiday tradition meets prodigious eventing, plus costume prizes. Thanks to its offish-season timing, and the Aspen proclivity to always take things to the next level, Halloween has become the local's holiday, par excellence.
The quiet, quaint streets fill with costumed revelers from neighboring valleys far and wide. They hop. They dance. They do Halloween like no one else.
