Moon Kats Sugar and Tea


They make their own Chai Tea mixture, which you can get spicy or sweet.  We combined the Chai tea with a Kroissant sandwich.  Perfectly sized - not too big, not too small...

We ordered their "Kup of soup and tea sandwich of the day" - Potato soup (the best we've ever had) combined with a mini-Kroissant which fit the bill perfectly.

You can also get made from scratch pastries and take home loose leaf tea or several different high quality teas.  AND if you like cats, this is the perfect place to find Kat-themed gift items.  

Halloween in Estes Park

For the last 30-some years Estes Park has hosted a downtown trick or treating event for the kids to be able to have a safe and fun environment to go trick or treating.  Many of the local businesses in the downtown area along Elkhorn Avenue stay open until 9:00 pm and trick or treating begins at 5:00 pm.  

Halloween Jack-o-Lantern

This event was created by Moses Street, a former Estes Park resident, back in either 1981 or 1982 to help bring more people to Estes Park at a time of year when there weren't as many visitors.  Residents and local businesses contribute candy at the local drop-off points at Safeway and the Estes Park Visitor Center, which is then distributed to the businesses remaining open for the event.
