Halloween is still ten days away, but Denver is always deep into spooky festivities. Trick-or-treaters are shopping for costumes and picking up pumpkins, and even animals are sporting their best spooky fashion. Here are ten of our favorite photos from 2017's scariest season....so far.

Funny or terrifying? We can't decide. Either way, this magnificent monster showed up at Denver's zombie crawl, and as ferocious as it appears, we're pretty sure it was lost on its way to another Halloween Party.

Poor Wonder Woman: The zombies bit off her face. The big question is, what happens to her superpowers?

Somebody lost his head at City of the Dead.

That is definitely not a spider on the ceiling.

We don't want to ruin the magic or terror, but this is what it looks like when the actors at City of the Dead are getting into costume.

Is there anything more endearing than a toddler hunting for pumpkins? 

Even crows wouldn't be scared of these guys.

Have you ever wanted to be the King for a day? This Halloween is your chance.

If being Elvis is too tame for your taste, try one of these frightening masks.

This might be the most frightening creature of all.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
