BACHELOR GULCH, Colorado – The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch is hosting several events leading up to Halloween. They include:

Fido Fridays Costume Contest, 4 to 6 p.m. Oct. 28

Join resident canines Bachelor and Miner at “Fido Fridays” for the resort’s first-ever costume contest for dogs. Imaginatively outfit your four-legged family member for the chance to win a 60-minute Signature Spa Treatment and “Pampered Pup” doggie massage at The Bachelor Gulch Spa.

“A Haunted Hallows Eve,” 7 to 11 p.m., Oct. 28

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch will throw its second-annual “Haunted Hallows Eve” party to benefit Habitat for Humanity of Eagle and Lake Counties.

Guests 21 and older are invited to wind through a floor of haunted corridors and rooms, culminating in The Ritz-Carlton Ballroom, where revelers will enjoy specialty cocktails, a cash bar, hors d’oeuvres, cool brews and, new this year, a live DJ and dancing. Plus, all attendees may enter the resort’s costume contest for the chance to win prizes, including a one-night stay at the resort. Tickets are available now for $40 per person and $70 per costume-coordinated duo and, space permitting, will be offered for $45 per person and $75 per costume-coordinated duo at the door.

Free shuttle service will be available from Beaver Creek’s Bear Lot, via Village Transportation, and valet parking will be available at the resort for $15. In addition, Colorado residents wishing to recover from the night can get rooms for $159 on Friday and Saturday night only.

Storytelling for families around the fire pit, 4 to 7 p.m. Oct. 30

Don your costume a day early and embark upon a family-friendly scavenger hunt before gathering around the fire pit for storytelling. Families will enjoy treats and a kid-friendly search for clues, followed by Beaver Creek storyteller Steve Jones’ hair-raising tale of the “Headless Horseman.”
