Seven Halloween Parties Where You Can Earn Prizes for Your Halloween Costume
Earn prizes for your costume this weekend.
Halloween weekend is upon us, and with the amount of money some people are spending on costumes, it’s worth a shot to try to earn back some of the expense. Here are seven opportunities to earn cash prizes and giveaways for the best Halloween costumes this weekend.
Friday, October 28
3242 East Colfax Avenue
Halloween is getting funky Friday night with a no-cover party at Goosetown Tavern. Ready Set Go will be presenting the Friday-Ween Party, complete with soul, Motown, funk and R&B classics. The dance party comes complete with a costume party, and Goosetown will award prizes for the two best outfits. The party starts at 9 p.m.
Cash and giveaways are up for grabs this Halloween weekend.
The Terminal Bar
1701 Wynkoop Street (Union Station)
For a different take on Halloween weekend, Terminal Bar will offer its Spooky Speakeasy for the second year. In addition to the themed cocktails and a DJ, the bar will award prizes for best costumes, including a $100 gift card to Denver Union Station and a free overnight stay in the Crawford Hotel. The Spooky Speakeasy takes place on the Lower Gallery Level at 8 p.m. Friday night.
The Tavern Downtown is offering two nights' worth of costume contests.
Halloween Weekend (Friday and Saturday)
The Tavern Downtown
1949 Market Street
The Tavern Downtown’s Halloween Weekend kicks off with DJ Silla the Thrilla spinning on Friday night and DJ Danny Diggz on Saturday night. Costume prizes total $1,000 on both nights, and Jäger Spice and Jim Beam will run you only $3.50. DJs start spinning at 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.
There are three days and $9,000 in prizes on the line for the best Halloween costumes in Denver.
Halloween Extravaganza (Friday through Monday)
2015 Market Street
If you spent $200 on your Halloween costume, here’s where you earn your money back. ViewHouse Ballpark’s Halloween Extravaganza will be handing out over $9,000 worth of prizes over Halloween weekend, beginning Friday night with a pumpkin-beer festival. In addition to the free beer sampling, $1,000 will be given to the first-place winner for best costume, and $500 will be handed out to the runner-up.
The ViewHouse of Horrors is one of Denver’s spookiest — and free — Halloween parties, and the same $1,000 and $500 prices will be handed out for best costumes. Catch this deal again Monday night at the Silent Disco of the Dead. The Ballpark location will be handing out prizes for costumes all weekend, though, so visit the ViewHouse website for more information. And for partiers in the south suburbs, ViewHouse Centennial is also hosting costume contests and frightening festivities.
