Magic of the Jack O'Lanterns

Last week the kids and I checked out a new to Colorado Halloween experience: Magic of the Jack O'Lanterns! 

Imagine 5,000 hand carved jack o'lanterns and pumpkin sculptures glowing in a beautifully lit garden setting as spooky music fills the air. Sounds like a Halloween dream, right? Well, it's a dream come true and you can experience it all at Magic of the Jack O'Lanterns. 

Magic of the Jack O'Lanterns makes it's Colorado debut this year at Hudson Gardens & Event Center in Littleton, just south of Denver. It's a wonderful family friendly event to add a little color and magic to the spooky season and definitely one you need to check out for yourself if you're in Colorado.

Halloween Fun In & Around Denver

The spooky season is here, so today I'm sharing some of my favorite Halloween events around Denver and the surrounding area. Pumpkin patches, corn mazes, haunted houses, spooky shows... There's something for everyone here no matter how spooky (or spookless) you like the season to be.

Street Wise Boulder 2021

Ok, by now you know I'm a big street art fan!

One thing that really surprised me when we moved to Colorado is the wealth of street art here. Both Boulder and Denver have some really great murals and if you been following along here for a while (or on Instagram) you're sure to have seen a lot of fun murals popping up in my posts. When we moved here from the Bay Area I honestly thought we'd be saying goodbye to colorful walls, but it's been such a fun surprise to find so much creativity and color here in Colorado. It's not all hiking and mountains!

In fact, street art is such a big part of the culture here in Colorado that there are several street art festivals held each year. In the past I've shared Colfax Canvas, Babe Walls and Crush Walls here on the blog (and lots on Instagram), and today I'm sharing another street art festival and one that's a little closer to home. It's Street Wise Boulder!

Street Wise Boulder is a week long "ARTivism" festival run by Street Wise Arts in September each year. Since it's beginning in 2019, the festival has added a ton of color to the walls of Boulder, but that's not all it has added. The festival and the murals have a strong focus on social justice, celebrating cultural diversity, and making art accessible. The artists involved come from a multitude of backgrounds and cultures.
