For families and Halloween thrill-seekers alike, a hike through the Chatfield Corn Maze heralds the changing of the seasons and fall fun for everyone. By day, kids can partake in hay rides, candy apples and other signals that winter is coming (or pluck a pumpkin from the field during the Pumpkin Festival that runs October 7 through 9), while by night, grownups can enjoy a scare in the dark. The Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield Farms attraction is open weekends (and Wednesday and Thursday, October 15 and 16) through October 30. All photos by Lindsey Bartlett.

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.
