Additional Information Submitted by Applicant

1. Date Submitted: 03/22/2023
There seems to be a miscommunication. The Creepy Walk in the Woods in October has never served liquor and does not plan to sell liquor. This might be confused with the Colorado Medieval Festival where Creepy Walk is the 501(c)3 that applies for the license to sell the liquor at the Festival in June. Thanks!
