Lantern Competition and 10 different Denver occasions this week

October is arguably the coolest month of the season. It brings boots, scarves, changing aspens, scary stories, Halloween and of course everything with a pumpkin flavor. This week Denver is full of zombies, mummies, and vampires (oh my god!). From festive to scary, there is a way for everyone to welcome October. Check out our list of Denver events not to be missed this week, including a new exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, an Emily Rose dinner party, Denver’s Lantern Festival, and more.
