Congratulations to all of the ghosts and ghouls in the Town of Firestone, as we’ve once again been named the top trick-or-treat town in Colorado! USA Today published the top trick-or-treat towns in each state based on an analysis by 24/7 Wall Street, a financial news and opinion company. Firestone was ranked in the top among thousands of towns on measures related to the trick-or-treating experience, including:
They also considered the number of nearby Halloween-themed businesses such as costume stores and haunted houses, including Fear of the Dark Haunted House (Ft. Collins) and Nightmare City Haunted House (Greeley). The Town of Firestone was the top pick for Colorado trick-or-treat towns out of our state’s 271 incorporated municipalities.
We look forward to seeing you at all of the Town’s Halloween festivities in the coming weeks, including trick-or-treating on Oct. 31!
