October is ‘Halloweentown’ Month in Oregon

If you grew up watching “Halloweentown,” you can relive it all during St. Helens, Oregon’s Spirit of Halloween Festival.

The movie was filmed in St. Helens in 1998, a role the town embraces with special events throughout the entire month of October. This year’s festivities kicked off on Saturday, Oct. 8 with the lighting of the Great Pumpkin and, who better to help out with the lighting than Marnie from the movie (a.k.a. Kimberly J. Brown).

Throughout the month, fans can also enjoy self-guided haunted tours, including spooky displays at local businesses!
