This weekend is giving us so many reasons to love fall! While the crisp air and colorful trees give us plenty of opportunity for enjoyment, we’ve found events that will make your weekend extra special. From Halloween movies to local music to professional sports– enjoy this fall weekend YOUR way!
October 11th – 13th – Spirit of Halloweentown
Over 20 years ago, the beautiful waterfront city of St. Helens was the proud filming site of Disney’s Halloweentown. In the years since, St. Helens has done us the favor of transforming its downtown area into the magical land depicted in the film! Follow the flickering light of the Great Pumpkin to the courthouse plaza for family-friendly spooky fun! The Spirit of Halloweentown will continue for the remainder of Halloween season, and includes attractions for kids and adults alike. Ample parking for cars, bikes, and broomsticks will be available throughout the town. Don’t forget to dress in your Hallows Eve best and be ready to trade tricks for treats!
October 12th – Oregon Music Hall of Fame Concert
The Pacific Northwest has been an amazing musical hub for several decades, producing successful bands of many genres. Music buffs have reason to celebrate this weekend at the Oregon Music Hall of Fame induction concert! Enjoy concert ceremonies, auctions of celebrity-signed equipment, and mingle among the finest folks in the PNW music scene at the beautiful Aladdin Theater. Inductees include grunge band, Pond, folk sensation Little Sue, and more!

October 13th – Buffy the Vampire Slayer
If you like your horror to be laced with laughs, the 13th of October is your lucky day! The NW Film Center invites us to enjoy a modern classic that will surely get your blood pumping.

Head on over to Whitsell Auditorium this Sunday, and consider a garlicky dinner… just to be safe.
