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

A few nights ago, while searching for a parking spot near a South Broadway bar, I found myself slamming on my brakes when I saw a house on Cedar -- 61 West Cedar to be exact -- that was decked to the skulls and scarecrows with Halloween paraphernalia.

It was a little late -- 11 p.m. -- to start pounding on the door (and a little early for tricks), so I started snapping photos, and lo and behold, the flash tipped off the owner that someone was lurking. Turns out, the guy who owns the house is an artist, and every year, he spends months turning his home into an outdoor Halloween museum.

And while that house is a bona fide fright site, the owner is not. And if you go trick-or-treating to his house this year -- and you're a kid in a costume -- you get candy (Snicker bars and such), along with movie passes or posters and toys. But here's the really cool part: Adults get beer!!!!!!!!

More scary photos follow....

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.
