Top Things To Do For Halloween in Durango

Looking for the best Halloween events in Durango? The spooky season has come around and it’s time to carve a pumpkin for your doorstep and hang some fake cobwebs in your window. Halloween is a fun time of year, as it is a chance to get dressed up and play make believe that you are a scary skeleton, a gruesome vampire or a rotting zombie. Scare your friends, collect lots of candy, watch spooky movies and celebrate this creepy and playful holiday.

Hauntings & History Ghost Tour

Join Horsefly History Tours on a special haunted underground tour this Halloween. You'll hear true ghost stories from the buildings and businesses on Main Avenue as you explore. Highlights of the tour include the saloon block, where the ghost of a murdered sheriff still lingeres, a sporting girl still wanders a building where her throat was slashed, and a little boy still plays and runs around the halls of an old hotel where he’s eternally waiting for his mom.
