Oh hey Halloween!
Stanley has teamed up with local nonprofit Kids' Compassion Project to bring you a pumpkin carving contest for a great cause that coincides with our #StanleyFamily trick or treating event on Sunday, October 28.
3PM -- Zombie crawl and Thriller flash mob hosted by Neighborhood Music Stapleton at Stanley Marketplace (see separate event page for details and to participate)
4PM -- Kick-off performance by Cherry Creek Dance in the community area at Stanley
4:15PM -- Trick or Treating at participating Stanley Marketplace businesses; see separate event page for details
4:30PM -- Jack o' Lantern contest entries due
If you are bringing a Jack O Lantern, be sure to register at:
5PM -- Jack o' Lantern judging begins on southeast plaza
6PM -- Jack o' Lantern winners announced; trick or treating ends
This event is free, but we ask for a $5 donation to Kids' Compassion Project for those who can afford it -- KCP provides meaningful community service opportunities to young people in support of local nonprofits; we are inspired by their mission to empower kiddos to help others.
The Jack o' Lantern contest will be divided into age categories and we'll award prizes to winners in each:
Pre-K to 5 years
6 years to 9 years
10 years to 12 years
13 to 17
18 and older
Entries must be brought to the event by 4:30PM on October 28. Judging will be based on design, detail, creativity and originality.
All kiddos are invited to participate in trick or treating at Stanley businesses from 4:15PM to 6PM on October 29. Don your favorite costumes and stroll through the marketplace; most of our businesses will have treats for you. And you're welcome to visit one of our food and beverage spots for dinner before or after.
If you've got a business that would like to support this event and the great work of KCP, send a message to Kids' Compassion Project.
We look forward to celebrating Halloween with all of you!
Stanley is a collection of independently owned Colorado small businesses which means #SmallBizSat is one of our favorite days of the year.
Join us for a festive day of shopping and eating and drinking, with specials at just about all of our businesses, American Express Small Business Saturday swag at several of them, and more -- we'll announce a schedule and related info as we get closer to the date.
