From fall festivals and football to art shows, marathons and more, this weekend in Denver has a little bit for everyone.

What's going on: Watch a Halloween-themed movie on Friday in Greenwood Village’s Marjorie Park, where you can snack on carnival treats, sip hot chocolate and play yard games. Upgraded seats and wine packages are also available.

🎟️ For those feeling spontaneous, buy tickets to the "Don’t Tell Denver" comedy show on Friday in Baker. The catch? It’s at a secret location featuring an unknown comedian. You won’t learn the deets until the day of the show (via email).

🏃 Lace up those sneakers and sign up to race in the 15th annual Colfax Marathon, a two-day event with multiple competitions, including a half-marathon and 5K.

🧙‍♀️ Grab your best costume and head to the Denver Art Society’s "Circus So Spook" on Saturday for a night of local art and carnival games, plus a cash bar to raise funds for the organization.

🏒 Watch the Colorado Avalanche face the St. Louis Blues in their second game of the season Saturday at Denver's Ball Arena.

🍂 Don your favorite plaid at the 4th annual Fall Flannel Fest, hosted on Sunday at the Dairy Block and Milk Market. The event includes food and drink specials, live music, face painting and more.

✈️ Catch the action at the Great Colorado Air Show this Saturday and Sunday in Loveland, where the U.S. Navy Blue Angels will headline the show for their first appearance in northern Colorado in nearly 20 years.

🏈 Cheer on the Denver Broncos on Sunday at Empower Field at Mile High as they go head-to-head with the Las Vegas Raiders.
