Friday

Wheel of Misfortune This evening and November 1, be part of a live taping of “The scariest game show ever.” (That’s what its creators are calling it, anyway.) Members of the audience are invited to complete everyday tasks that are made frighteningly difficult. Each challenge is determined by spinning the Wheel of Misfortune, and competitors must master trivia, solve puzzles and overcome physical obstacles to win prizes, including $333 cash! 

Lipgloss Annual Sci-Fi Costume Party Held at Beauty Bar Denver one Monday a month, Lipgloss is one of Denver’s longest-running dance parties. Tonight’s soirée features music by boyhollow and DJ Tower, and sci-fi paraphernalia will be awarded to the best dressed. 
 
Saturday

Colorado Parade of Pit Bulls This third annual parade of dogs marches down Main Street in Littleton. The event was conceived as an extension of National Pit Bull Awareness Day, which aims to spread appreciation for, and education about, the American pit bull terrier. All well-behaved dogs, not just pit bulls, are welcome and costumes are encouraged. Prizes will be awarded for biggest head, biggest bully grin, best trick, and best costume.

Sunday

Passport to Paris This exhibition’s trio of shows —Court to Cafe, Nature as Muse, and Drawing Room— focuses on French art from the late 1600s to early 1900s and explores changes in art and society over three centuries. On view now through February 9 at the Denver Art Museum, this exhibition is a rare opportunity to view works by Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and Claude Monet at one time.

Corn Maze Haven’t made it out to the eight-acre corn maze at the Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield’s? Well, this is your last chance in 2013! Check out the maze’s Colorado flag design from two 15-foot illuminated bridges that overlook it. Hayrides and pony rides are available, and vendors will be on hand selling freshly squeezed lemonade, funnel cakes, hotdogs and kettle corn.
