The Weekender // October 26-28th
Hallo-weekend is finally here and Durango has lots of spooky and festive events for this weekend’s celebration. There’s a haunted railroad tour, a family-friendly fall festival, and a live production of the Rocky Horror Picture Show!
Ghost Crawl - Friday Night, October 26th
Have you ever wondered if the train is haunted? Come join the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad museum for a tour of the most haunted places at the railroad. Those brave enough will be guided through the roundhouse, warehouse, boxcars, and museum to learn about this history and hauntings of each. With over 137 years of railroad history, there have been many mysterious encounters and participants will get to hear all of the stories. There are limited spots available, so it’s recommended to book your spooky experience in advance. The event runs from 9pm-10pm and is recommended for those 18+ (participants under 18 are welcome when accompanied by an adult).
Fall Festival - Saturday, October 27th
Fall is in full swing here in Durango, and it’s time for the biggest Three Springs event of the year: The 12th Annual Fall Festival. Bring the whole family for trick or treating around town, live music from Dave Mensch, a pumpkin patch, and more! Want to get the kids excited? Print out This Coloring Sheet for the coloring contest.
