Denver Zombie Crawl to return to Skyline Park, 1600 Arapahoe Street, for the twelfth year in a row. Starting at 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 7, interested participants can don their best undead attire — think tattered clothing, grotesque makeup and healthy drizzle of fake blood — and turn downtown Denver into their own personal George Romero movie. Makeup stations will be available for Halloween novices along with a gauntlet of vendors, but the crawl's main attraction is its fiercely competitive costume contest, which costs $5 to enter ($10 for groups). The party continues at the official Zombie Prom after-party at Rooftop Jackson's Bar & Grill, 1520 20th Street, hosted by Club Cosplay Denver and NerdPopCulture Entertainment; tickets start at $15. The otherwise free day of festivities is intended for all ages, though parents might want to exercise discretion with small children who might be frightened by teeming hordes of bloodied revelers.
