THE DEN10: OCTOBER 23

If you were to ask the city of Denton what it's favorite holiday was it would undoubtedly say Halloween. This city loves this holiday. Part of the reason may be that it's the one that all the students and townies are all in for. Maybe it's the chance for a town full of creatives to go nuts on their costumes. Well here's to the month of Halloween and everything that comes with it - which happens to be a whole slew of season related events. Don't forget to hashtag #WDDI to get posted in our What We Did post on Monday.

For tips, questions or ideas for future toasts, email glen@wedentondoit.com
