Friday, Oct. 26, 2018Afternoon Paintout.- Old Town Annual Halloween Costume Paint out

The Crown Pub, 134 S. College Ave., Fort Collins 3:00pm - 6:00pm

Wear your costume (or not) (I'll definitely be wearing a costume, maybe my onesie skeleton) and meet outside the Crown Pub. We can paint in or around old town here. Should be dusky. Then at 6:00pm we can go into The Crown Pub for a drink, snack, or a meal together. You may need to bring a booklight for your easel because of the sun setting early.

For long term cheap parking go to either the Old Town Garage (Remington and Mountain) or the Civic Center Garage (Laporte and Mason). Both are about equal distance from the Crown Pub. Or park on the streets, with a timer to move your car after 2 hours.
