Five Ghost Tours and Haunted Happenings in Colorado

Five Ghost Tours and Haunted Happenings in Colorado
Fans of the supernatural and paranormal don't have to limit themselves to Halloween to indulge in their love of ghost hunts, psychic phenomenon, and haunted buildings and sites. Just look at this weekend's Paranormal Supernatural Conference, the first of what its organizers hope will be many deep dives into all things otherworldly. Beyond this weekend, the Mile High City offers a glut of opportunities for you to feed your intrigue and break out your ghost-hunting equipment. Just make sure not to pick up any ghostly souvenirs from your visit to the Other Side. Here are five of Denver's best paranormal events to attend this year.
