Mountain Mayhem: All Hallow’s Eve

Britney Spears, the Roaring Fork River, Richard Simmons and a flapper.

Having missed the past two Halloweens in Aspen, it was high time to be back to celebrate this year. Understandably, Saturday night was a test run with costume parties and Halloween happenings, but the official holiday took place on Monday, drawing the masses.

To quote a local watering hole from Facebook, “Call us crazy, but at Ryno’s we don’t watch fireworks on July 2nd. We don’t exchange gifts on December 27th. And we don’t dress up in scary and sexy costumes on October 29th. Come see us Monday, October 31st (Halloween) for Scary-Oke, a costume contest, and some great drink specials. Your boss will understand on Tuesday.”

It seems all were in agreement, judging by the number of dressed up revelers from Ryno’s to Hooch to Belly Up to the ‘Bou, and before that the North 40, all shown in the photos below.
