Durango's Top Neighborhoods For Trick or Treating
Halloween night is right around the corner, and that means it’s time to start planning out your route for the big night! If you’re still trying to determine where to go trick-or-treating this year, we’ve found a few great options.
While you may think only big neighborhoods are best for trick-or-treating, think again! Downtown Durango is gearing up for its own big night, and this one promises to be big on treats, especially for the younger crowd.
The annual downtown event offers up a safe place for kids 10 and younger to trick-or-treat from 4pm-6pm Halloween night. Local retailers will be handing out treats to kids early enough to get them back in bed for a good night of rest.
The downtown event is also a great opportunity for the grownups to get a taste of what some of the local merchants have to offer. You may want to come out a little early or stick around and grab a bite to eat yourself in Downtown Durango on the big night.
Three Springs Community
If you can’t wait until Halloween night, the Three Springs community is planning its own fun for Saturday, October 28. Just a few days before Halloween, the public is invited out to Three Springs Plaza for the 11th annual Three Springs Fall Festival.
The family-friendly event runs from 11am-2pm, with activities including trick-or-treating, a pumpkin patch, arts and crafts, games, live music and more. Some activities will require a small donation, benefiting the La Plata Family Centers Coalition.
It’s also a good opportunity to get a look around Three Springs, an area filled with walk-able, friendly streets and plenty of open space. The inviting area also includes many homes with welcoming front porches, with various options in new construction designs.
One of Durango’s largest subdivisions, Sky Ridge is easily a family favorite. The area is home to many families, close to a city park and entertains some fantastic views before the sun goes down.
You’ll also find that many of the homes in Sky Ridge are close together, making it easy for the kiddos to hop from house to house this Halloween. The subdivision is filled with so many properties, though, you may find the kids are out of room in their Halloween sacks well before you’ve put in all the footwork to get around the entire subdivision.
Durango Public Library
It’s not exactly a neighborhood, but the Durango Public Library is still making big plans to usher in Halloween this year. The library plans to host an array of fun Halloween activities the morning of Thursday, October 26. Starting at 10:30am, kids are invited to come in costume to story time, and then stick around for some trick-or-treating in the library afterwards.
Parents should note that this is a candy-free event and it’s also free to attend. Bring your little ghosts and goblins and be prepared for some fun songs, stories, rhymes and a host of other Halloween-themed activities.
