So that you don’t miss out on the spookiest month of the year, we’ve compiled a list of all the ghostly Halloween events in and around the Portland area.
For those scaredy cats out there, we’ve added some special milder events to the list like “Howloween at the Zoo” or the Pumpkin Festival, as well as heaps of farms, where you can pick and carve pumpkins, ride cow trains, get lost in corn mazes, and enjoy tractor-pulled hay rides. And for those of you who love a good scare we’ve included all the haunted happenings for Halloween 2014, including: parties, dances, zombie walks, Michael Jackson’s Thriller flash mob dance, spooky houses and graveyards, and even Halloween themed sporting events and thrilling film festivals.
The hostel will also be leading special Halloween events during October. Please check our activities board or ask at the reception for more information.
Now get out there and get scared!
