If you love Halloween, this weekend is for you!  We’ve got some Oregon classics as well as some non-traditional Halloween options.  If its not your favorite, how does a HUGE book sale or film festival sound?

Just a 30 minute drive from Portland, St. Helens is where the 1998 Disney cult movie Halloweentown was filmed.  This is one of the most popular family-friendly Halloween celebrations in the pacific Northwest.  The normally sleepy town fully embraces this ceremony with a variety of Halloweentown-themed events.
