Fall is approaching fast. Have you started making your plans? Make our Spotlight Fall and Halloween editions your official guide to a perfect season. Halloween is the first holiday of the holiday season—and one of the fastest-growing. Last year’s Halloween spending was expected to reach $9.1 billion, according to the National Retail Federation.

More costumes, home, yard and party decorations than ever will be flying off the shelves as our readers gear up to celebrate. Over a third of celebrants start their fall and Halloween shopping in September; 44 percent shop the first two weeks of October, and 22 percent buy during the final two weeks.

If you offer fall or Halloween related products or services, our Friday Mag/Colorado Daily and Longmont/Loveland A&E Spotlight Fall and Halloween editions are a scarily good way to get the word out.

The Fall editions (think corn mazes, pumpkin patches and more) publish Fri., Sept. 28. The Halloween editions (haunted houses and spooky events) publish Fri., Oct. 19. Reserve your ad by 4 p.m. Monday prior to publication (Times-Call and Reporter-Herald); 4 p.m. Tuesday prior publication for Friday Magazine and Friday Colorado Daily.
