Corridors of Gold and Ghoulish Events

Fall is many Vail locals’ favorite season for its stunning colors, frosty mornings with blazing afternoons, and quieter Village.

On Sunday, October 2, the Vail Farmers’ Market and Art Show rounds out its season, bringing together local and regional produce and wares, as well as 40 different food vendors. Local trails, paved in aspen leaves and autumn’s scent, become corridors of gold that give way to sapphire sky views. Listen carefully: you might hear elk bugling. Restaurants feature off-season dining specials. Vail has plenty of Halloween fun for ghosts and ghouls, young and old. On October 31, the Vail Public Library offers a Halloween-themed story hour and activities at 1:00 p.m. Costumed kids can then head to Vail Village or Lionshead for the Trick or Treat Trot with participating businesses from 2:00 to 4:00. When darkness descends, adults can slink to a number of costume contests, or even Masquerading for Murder, a murder mystery dinner at the Sonnenalp Hotel.
