Looking for things to do in Denver for Halloween? Get ready for a spectacularly spooky October. Explore an eight-acre corn maze. Hear tales of Victorian horror.

COLORADO'S COOLEST CORN MAZE

WHEN: Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 16-Oct. 30, 2016

Get lost at this year's Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield's eight-acre Corn Maze, one of the most attended corn mazes in the country. Wind your way through acres of corn in search of Farmer Green's lost animals, view the design from two 15-foot tall illuminated bridges that overlook the giant Corn Maze, and watch the delight as younger children find their way through a special free mini-maze designed just for them. Hayrides, a giant jump pillow and pony rides will be available for an additional cost. An array of food vendors will offer some of your favorite fall foods, including freshly squeezed lemonade, funnel cakes, hot dogs and kettle corn. And don't forget to come out during Pumpkin Fest to pick the perfect jack-o-lantern from the gardens' 10-acre patch.
