We have historic re-enactors, great historians and storytellers who have a world of knowledge about Denver and Colorado history, and it would be a horrible shame to waste that, says FHRC president Hugh Graham. Waste not, want not: The experts, including former Riverside caretaker Cliff Dougal, will introduce the famous and the not-so-famous from 2 to 4 p.m. (tours leave every 15 minutes until 3:15 p.m.) at the cemetery, 5201 Brighton Boulevard. Afterward, spooked visitors are invited to head over to the Wynkoop Brewing Company, 1634 18th Street, for a reception celebrating Spirits of Riverside, an exhibit of Riverside-themed works by local artists that also features a special seasonal Riverside RIP Pumpkin Ale. Meet and greet at the Wynkoop from 5 to 7 p.m. before heading out into the Halloween night.
Both events are free, but an RSVP is requested in advance for the tour (e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org); go to http://friendsofriversidecemetery.org for information.
