Halloween contains trick or treats, haunted houses, witches, ghosts and superheroes to amuse children.
What about grown-ups than never did grow up?
Instead of accompanying kids and grandchildren for begging on a dark and stormy night., some adult singles still get their own chance at Halloween their way. The exact date of Halloween is two days after the Saturday parties.
Most young parents and non-parents observe the event at bars and nightclubs that will be recognizing the theme.
Then there are the private costume parties especially for adults of all ages.
The ultimate and the extreme party in Denver is the 8th Annual Paranormal Palace on October 29.. The outrageous party returns this year to the newly renovated McNichols Civic Center Building at 114 W. Colfax Avenue. Adjacent to the City and County Building the former Carnege Library just re-opened after a $5.5 million remodel.
And the first big event for the historic structure is very scary in many ways.
The Paranormal Palace attracts more than 2,500 costumed guests who will enter through a 25 foot skull entry. Once inside there are 20-foot spiders, two bands, two DJ’s, and more than 30 performers and models. Music is billed as "Monster beats from Top 40 mash ups to hip-hop 80’s and terrifying groves that pound the Palace walls."
The sensory overload has a variety of prices starting at $95.37 including tax but only 965 tickets are available. The limited consumption tickets are cheaper but sold out. Special seating costs more all the way up to a "3-person couch pit" for $299 plus tax.
This is the 8th year that Kevin Larson has presented this event for the 21-5 age group. This year it is also a fundraiser for the V-2 Education Foundation. More information is available on his very strange website ParanormalPalace.org.
At the other end of the party, dancing and drinking spectrum is the annual Boomer Social Halloween Dance. This age 50- plus group has already seen their share of Halloween, first through the eyes of their children and now their grandchildren. They also have a wealth of costume background. So, now it is their turn but in a more sedate style.
Far from an open bar, their first and often only drink is included in the $15 admission. Music is familiar, what they remember from different times of their life and is not loud.
Their favorite entertainers are the duo of Tony David and Kerry Edwards who sing recorded songs exactly the way they were written. Costumes are less blood and gore but often sexy and more imaginative. They are still dating so look your best in a costume you like emulating a celebrity they admired.
The crowd dances non-stop but leaves promptly at 11 on Saturday night so the semi-revelers can rest and be ready for church in the morning.
The adult singles celebration is usually in a sedate Southeast Aurora hotel, but this year it is at The Rendezvous Restaurant, adjacent to Heather Gardens Community Center. Doors open to party guests at 7:30, after the Early Bird Special is served and cleared.. The music starts at 8 with line dancers filling the floor.
No reservations are required or taken. More information and photos are at www.Boomersocial .net. For more information about Paranormal Palace, visit www.paranormalpalace.com.
