Visit St. Helens throughout October to participate in their month-long festival, “Spirit of Halloweentown.” Activities include haunted houses, town-wide tours, pumpkin carving contests and a meet-and-greet with actress Kimberly Brown, who played Marnie, the central witch of the 1998 film.
The small town is less than a 30-mile drive from Portland, and only has a handful of small hotels. So if you’re planning a trip for Halloween weekend, make sure you do so before the town is booked up and check the Columbia County visitor’s guide for more details.
If you can’t make it out to Halloweentown this month, see the haunted town below to relive your childhood dreams and, remember: There’s always next year!
