Here are some fun activities to do during spooky season
Iyonna Moore
With spooky season approaching, fun fall festivities are on every corner. Colorado is a great place to get into the holiday spirit and Frederick is surrounded with a bunch of fun activities to enjoy the spirit of Halloween.

As the leaves change from green to a dazzling display of reds, oranges, and yellows, fall is here in full swing. It’s the perfect time to dive into the season, swapping out beach trips for pumpkin picking, hot chocolate sips, and cozy fireside chats. The weather’s shifting, with the summer heat making way for crisp, cool days. So grab your favorite sweater and let’s dive into all the fun that fall has to offer here in our home state! Below are a couple activities to get you all started on our spooky fun.
