When alumni come back to the place where they spent four of their best years, they can’t help but take advantage of all the happiness and array of festivities happening in town this weekend; so should you! No matter if you immerse yourself in the Boulder spirit or want to lay low, we’ve got a few ideas for you to fill your weekend with something new.


  1.  Iluminar Aerial Dance Show

As we’re getting closer to Halloween, there’s about to be a lot of house decorations, bagged candy at the grocery store, pumpkins galore, and spooky themed events just like the ‘Nightmare in the Air’ aerial dance show at Iluminar! Not only is this show unique because the dancers are suspended mid-air, but it’s actually a performance of Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas. This spooky show will certainly prove to be captivating. Get tickets for Friday night to see your favorite movie characters take flight in this fun Halloween show.
