As you know, Aspenites love an event, and few events are more fun to plan for than Halloween. Fortunately, while we're a small town, we don't lack for places to help us get ready for the big night. If you're still looking for a costume or for some extras to add to it, you can find everything you need at Carl's Pharmacy--from colored hairspray to costumes to black nail polish, they've got it all!
The Saturday we've all been waiting for is tomorrow - October 19 - when Aspen Middle School hosts the 59th annual Aspen Ski Swap. The doors open at 9:30am for eager bargain hunters looking to upgrade their equipment and winter clothing without spending a bundle. If you would like to sell gently used clothing or gear, drop it off today between 4 and 6pm. This is one of Aspen's most cherished fall traditions, so don't miss it!
Starting today, October 16, Aspen Middle School is hosting the Scholastic Book Fair, weekdays through Wednesday, October 23. The fair will have extended hours 9am to 6pm today and October 23, otherwise the regular hours are 9am to 4pm. The fair has books for all ages and is a perfect opportunity to do some early holiday shopping for your family of readers. All proceeds will go towards supporting the Middle School Library.
