Denton’s Day of the Dead 2016 | Industrial & Hickory Streets | 11AM
We’re pretty sure Denton was founded on the principal that this day would be foundational in it’s present, past and future. Help celebrate the moment they attempted to bury John B Denton on an icy Fall day when they lost control of his coffin and it careened out of control down Hickory Street. That’s completely true. Look it up.
Cirque Du Horror | Dan’s Silver Leaf | 4:30 and 9:00PM
Denton’s premier musical variety spooktakular (sorry / tired) gets two performances on Saturday and then another on Sunday at 5:00PM. It’s weird, dirty, spooky and led by virtuosic mastermind, David Pierce.

Denton's Historic Park won't be left out of the Halloween fun. Dentists came up with this holiday, right?
