MEEKER I Children and adults are invited to participate in the many Halloween festivities the Eastern Rio Blanco Metropolitan Recreation & Park District has to offer Friday and Saturday. Check out the following events for all things spooky, haunted and fun:
A dressed-down skeleton lounges on a bench, ready to welcome visitors to a home on South White Avenue in Rangely. The decoration is one of many around town heralding the coming of Halloween.
Royalty was in attendance Friday afternoon at the ERBM Rec Center-sponsored Halloween celebration in downtown Meeker, designed to offer the town’s children a chance to trick or treat in a safe environment. Royalty, animals, superheroes and monsters were out in numbers as several events entertained those of all ages from 3 to 5 p.m.
MEEKER I It’s creepy. And it keeps getting creepier. Such is the Halloween tradition at Antler Taxidermy in Meeker for the past 34 years, and, according to owner Donna Wille, “it will likely continue for many years as me and my husband, Bill, truly enjoy Halloween and its scary, gory, graphic nature.”
There were lots of Halloween happenings Saturday in Meeker as signified by this carving by Ben Quinn at the NewHope-Meeker Holiday Ball.
Tonya Morris of Meeker won Best Costume award at the NewHope-Meeker Holiday Ball on Saturday. The ball was held to raise funds for the NewHope-Meeker Palliative Care Program planned in conjunction with Pioneers Medical Center in Meeker. The program will help families take care of relatives in the last stages of their lives.
MEEKER I Whether you just want to be entertained by little ones (and grown-ups, too) in costume, scare yourself silly, or just load up on goodies, downtown Meeker is the place to be this Monday, Oct. 31.
MEEKER — Everyone is invited to attend the free Pumpkins, Eats and Treats event sponsored by the Rec. District.
Headhunters Haunted House is back. After a two-year break for personal reasons, Bill and Donna Willes’ front yard on Market Street is once again a veritable collage of the creepy, the spooky and, in some cases, the hauntingly humorous. To say the Willes enjoy Halloween would be an understatement.
