Halloween in Aspen ....is SIIIIIICK. The whole town gets off---in a good way of course. Its just plain nasty. Kids and adults lavish lots of time, money and energy on their elaborate costumes. The Silver City gets lit-up like a jack-o-lantern, even on Sunday.
For Aspen locals , Halloween is like the unofficial New Year's Eve. When you reside in a tourist based economy....and there are no tourists (Oct and Nov).... on Halloween you get to party like a rock star....crash hard....and then call in siiiiiiiick the next day.... with very few consequences. Another factor.... there are 85 bars within the four block radius that makes up Aspen's Core....so party hopping is required. Also, when all Hallows Eve strikes...everyone knows that ski season is not far behind.
Not that we ever need an excuse to go hard....cause going hard is a lifestyle in Aspen. AspenSpin took a few pix and took a few shots. Click: NIGHTMARE in ASPEN.
