Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

It couldn't be done, they said. It'll be a blizzard, and kids will be sliding down the ramp, they warned. Well, surprise, surprise — it has yet to snow in the metro area and the first ever Red Rocks show on October 31 was held in beautiful, mid-50s degree weather. The temperature was perfect for audience members who donned out-of-control Halloween costumes for the occasion. From Uncle Sam's entourage to Deez Nutes, Bat Miller and the pajama gang mafia, here are the ten most outrageous costumes on the rocks this Halloween.  See more weird moments captured by photographer Miles Chrisinger in our slideshow.

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.
