ENRICH-0662 – Hist/Cult In-Person: Haunted Denver (ENRICH-0662_HAUN)

Haunted Denver: Enter at Your Own Risk. Mwah ha ha ha…

As the chill of autumn descends upon us, the wind howls and leaves fall from the trees, crunching beneath our feet. The nights shorten and barren branches cast eerie shadows. Before long, carved-out pumpkins appear on door steps and scary ghosts and skeletons sway ominously in the moonlight. BOO! All you brave souls with hearts of steel and yearning for all things scary, get ready for a peek at some of Denver's most spooktacular sections and ghastly garrets with the city's ghost guide, Kevin Snow. Known around these parts as "the Reluctant Ghost Hunter," Snow revels in telling tales of the wretched spirits who call Denver home. From the sleeping specters of the Waring Mansion to the peeping poltergeists of the Oxford Hotel, explore Denver’s haunted heart. We’ll even throw in the famous Hatchet Lady of Red Rocks fame for more phantom-like fun. Indeed, you disciples of haunted haunts, this unlikely Enrichment course offers more than scintillating slides viewed in a nondescript classroom lit by fulgid fluorescents. Oh, yes! Prepare to follow up your educational endeavor by sauntering the streets, peeking (if you dare) at the sites and reveling in the fear. Enroll at your own risk, we tell you. But take heed: those who have missed this opportunity in the past have made Jack the Strangler mad, very mad. Mwah ha ha ha…

Kevin Snow really does NOT like scary things, and yet he has become a local expert in the subject because the ghosts keep finding HIM! His two books on the subject, The Haunted Heart of Denver and Historic Haunts around Denver, are not for the craven. All he asks is that you leave your ghosts at home.
