October 28, 2016

SK&H has conjured up a wicked and wild list of fun (and mostly family friendly) Halloween events to do this weekend. But if you’re not into the gory-lo-rious rituals of All Hallow’s Eve then we suggest you take in an antique show, a mushroom fest or cheer on the Oregon Ducks as the play against Arizona State in Eugene. It’s all waiting for you! Boo!


Halloween Fantasy Trail
Through Oct. 31, 2016

Take a Halloween walk through a lighted, wooded, “Fantasy Trail”, decorated with spooky sights and sounds. Walk through a 40 foot castle with Halloween scenes. Also, walk through a tunnel, maze, crooked house, suspension bridge, and more. Pumpkins and refreshments are available.

Haunted Pub Crawl: Fear and Beer
Through Oct. 31, 2016

The Haunted Pub Tour in Portland’s historic Old Town District is roughly 2.5 hours while you stop at 3 local pubs and sample 7 beers. The walking portion of the tour covers less than 1 mile and is all above-ground. We rate this tour as “mildly spooky.”

Haunted House: Fright Town
Through Oct. 31, 2016

Covering a 40,000 square foot “basement” beneath Portland’s Memorial Coliseum, FrightTown is the Pacific Northwest’s biggest, scariest and best-reviewed haunted event, featuring three huge, amazing haunted houses in one location for one price. Baron Von Goolo’s Museum of Horrors, the top rated madhouse of humor and horror, returns for its fifteenth year in Portland with new scares around every corner; The Witch House pushes you into a conflict between police and a cult of mad demon-worshippers who have unleashed dark powers far beyond their ability to control! And all new for 2016, they’ve introduced Grimthorne Manor, a descent into gothic horror, teeming with vampires, werewolves and all manner of vengeful spirits!

Haunted Yard
Through Oct. 31, 2016

It took the Davis family several years to bring the dead and dying to life, but the dream has become a reality. See Davis Graveyard in Milwaukie any day, or after dusk to see the lights, or even wait for special effects Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings. For over 10 years, they have created a creepy crawly yard haunt that has attracted people from all over the Portland area. This event is free.
