You want to dress up for Halloween, but you don't want to have to refinance your house to do it. Where in Grand Junction can you find a good Halloween costume on the cheap? Have your considered shopping your local university?

The Colorado Mesa University Department of Theatre Arts is holding its annual Halloween Costume Sale on October 12 and 13.

Over the course of the last few years, the CMU Theatre Department has presented productions of Rent, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Avenue Q, and more. Of course, it's not my place to say what costumes they'll have for sale, but wouldn't it be awesome to trick or treat this year dressed as Dr. Frank-N-Furter?

Items from the costume shop will be on display from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. How much? Prices start as low as $5, and go no higher than $20. What do they plan to do with the money? Proceeds go towards the CMU Theatre Arts Scholarship Fund.

Score an excellent costume, save money, and support education. Make plans to shop the annual Halloween Costume Sale at CMU.
