Steamboat Springs knows how to celebrate when it come to holidays.

Our Fourth of July Parade is always a hit with hundreds of people lining Lincoln Avenue, Labor Day is celebratory with Wild West Air Fest at the Steamboat Springs Airport and Thanksgiving is opening day of the 2008-2009 ski season.

But Steamboat really knows how to do Halloween. In such a family oriented town, the Downtown Halloween Stoll has quickly become one of my favorite events. From 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. last Friday night, Lincoln Avenue in Steamboat Springs was closed to cars and open to trick-or-treating, festive costumes and the center of a town quickly became the place to see your friends, neighbors and colleagues. It’s like a block party with 5,000 of your closest friends and just another reason why I love calling Steamboat home.
