All Hallows’ Eve — better known as Halloween — brings all the party-monsters out to play. Originally a Western celebration, Halloween has spread throughout the world becoming one of the best excuses to dress-up in costumes and party your inhibitions away. While each region has its own take on Halloween, Coloween has become one of Denver’s top Halloween parties in 2016. The wildest Halloween parties and haunted houses in 2016 are located around the globe.
Top Halloween Parties in 2016
Halloween is a rowdy Holiday celebrated in regions all over the world. While Coloween is a Denver Halloween party locals talk about year-round, many of the craziest parties are found in other locations. A few spots known for their incredible Halloween parties include Mexico, Ireland, London and Hong Kong.
Día de Los Meurtos, or Day of the Dead, is a Mexican holiday that begins on All Hallows’ Eve — the 31st of October in honor of those that have passed away. One of the most bad-ass elements of Día de Los Muertos are the sugar skulls found on virtually every face in attendance.
You may have heard, but the Irish know how to party. The nine-day festival named “Samhain Night” is known for harboring medieval ghosts, haunted houses and other urban legends. The Banks of the Foyle Halloween Carnival in Derry City is the largest Halloween celebration in Ireland.
Many believe Jack the Ripper still haunts the streets of London. England celebrates Halloween as All Saints’ Day, and the pubs and streets go mad with people in costumes. With a fairly sinister history, London makes an appropriate destination for a spooky Halloween experience.
Known for being the Halloween party capital of Asia, Hong Kong completely transforms itself on Halloween. The streets are flooded with people celebrating “Yue Lan” — Festival of the Hungry Ghosts — and giving gifts to the dead.
While it may not be the biggest Halloween party in the United States, Coloween is among the top in the nation — and definitely the largest in Colorado. The open bar / hotel-takeover / costume contest / Halloween party has become one of Denver’s the most anticipated parties of the year.
