Halloween in Breckenridge
Whether you are taking the kids out for a ghostly night of trick-or-treating or looking to enter your finest mummy getup in a costume contest, here’s a look at Breckenridge’s Halloween hot spots.
Take your mini ghosts and goblins out on the town for a night of traditional trick-or-treating. Thanks to the Breckenridge Police Department, Harris Street, High Street as well as areas of the Wellington neighborhood, will be closed to motorized traffic, making it easy to meet up with friends and fill up on treats.

Breckenridge Ghost tours will also be running a haunted Halloween tour from 5:30 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. at the Brown Hotel, where numerous ghosts are rumored to still call home. More details and information on tickets here:
