Halloween in Summit County

Summit County is a wonderful place for the entire family to enjoy, so why should Halloween be any different? If you are planning a trip to the high country over Halloween weekend and are looking for some family-friendly activities near the Frisco Lodge, we’ve got you covered with a list of some of Summit County’s most popular Halloween events.

Halloween Skate Party (Stephen C. West Ice Arena, Breckenridge)

On Friday, October 31st, from 7:30 to 9:00pm, the Town of Breckenridge will be holding its Halloween Skate Party at the Stephen C. West Ice Arena. Grab the entire family and kick off your Halloween with a spooky skate party. Show off your Halloween costume and you may skate away with a “spooktacular” prize! Admission to the event is $4 for adults and $3 for youth for valid costumer-wearers only.

Ghostly Tales Ghost Hunt (Breckenridge)

For the “not so faint of heart,” the “Ghostly Tales” walking tour (Ghost Hunt of Breckenridge) will explore the darker side of Breckenridge with paranormal devices. Running Mondays through Saturdays at 7pm, the price of admission is $10 for children and $15 for adults.

Trick or Trails (South Gondola Lot, Breckenridge)

On Friday, October 31st, come experience some of Breckenridge’s finest trails and get your “spook” on with either a 10K or 5K trail race, or a kid’s 1K costume run with Trick or Trails. Run through the Troll Forest, down Pence Miller and weave through the spookiest trick-or-treated out single track around. Costumes are allowed and encouraged, but wearing a trail running costume will benefit you. Registration fees are $35 for the 5K, $45 for the 10K and $15 for the 1K kid’s costume run.

Nightmare at the Museum (Summit County Library, Frisco)

Taking place at the Summit County Library Thursday, October 30th from 4 to 5pm, experience ghastly tales and chilling poems of Victorian Gothic literature with selections from “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” and Edgar Allan Poe, including “The Raven.”

A reception at the Frisco Historic Park & Museum will follow the readings. Explore the Historic Park by lantern, enjoy a macabre evening at the Museum and revisit some horror classics. Gothic and Victorian attire are encouraged and light treats and refreshments will be provided.

Trick-or-Treat on Main Street (Main Street, Frisco)

Frisco's Main StreetRight outside the front door of our Frisco bed & breakfast, trick-or-treaters will be able to help themselves to all the sweets they can handle from business up and down historic Main Street and Frisco Historic Park from 6 to 8pm on Halloween night. Simply look for the bright, orange jack-o-lanterns hanging outside Main Street businesses that are participating. For the young ones that might need a break, cartoons will be playing in the Historic Park Log Chapel.

Haunted House (Frisco)

Again, just minutes from the Frisco Lodge, this creepy haunted house is built and operated by local youth as a learning opportunity through Activities Run By Youth and Mountain Mentors. Visit Frisco’s Haunted House from October 30th through November 1st if you dare. The haunted house will be open from 6 to 10pm those days, with ticket prices at $5 for students, $7 for adults and $20 for a family four-pack.

So, do yourself (and the kiddos) a favor. While staying at our Frisco bed and breakfast over Halloween, why not imbibe in a little tomfoolery with some or all of these events?
