Deals: Halloween Party, Cheyenne Mountain Resort & More!
posted by: Gretchen
I recently saw the movie Only The Brave, based on the true story of Granite Mountain Hotshots. The movie was fantastic with the balance between fire-fighting life and family life that many of these first responders lead. I have several friends whose husbands are part of a firefighting team. I don’t often think about the sacrifice they need to make when they send their husband (or wife) off to work.
Outlets at Castle Rock Halloween Party. A few days before All Hallows’ Eve, Outlets at Castle Rock is inviting families to take their Halloween costumes out for a test run at the Wicked Wednesday (Oct 25) Halloween Party! This kid-friendly evening will include face painting, a holiday magic show by Keir Royale, a costume contest, all-center trick-or-treating and more. The Costume Contest will begin at 5:30PM and participation is open to ages 12 and under. Costumes will be judged in three categories – funniest, scariest and most creative – and winners will receive a special prize from the center. Trick-or-Treating will take place throughout the property from 4:30PM-6:30PM and spooky signage will direct candy-hunters into participating stores.
