HALLOWEEN COMEDY FILMED IN RIVERFRONT PARK
If you saw some zombies in Commons Park earlier this week it wasn’t the Denver Zombie Crawl. It was the comedy company Urban Brain filming a Zombie Musical Mash Up in Commons Park.
Riverfront’s Commons Park is one of the most sought after destinations in Denver for photographers and filmmakers due to the exceptional beauty in the Architecture and Design of not only the buildings but also the public spaces. Even Zombies appreciate how great of a neighborhood Riverfront Park is.
Here is a quick round up of the cool events happening in the milehimodern city of Denver this Halloween.
