St. Helens is Halloween central. And it’s about to welcome back its biggest star in the form of “Halloweentown’s” Kimberly J. Brown. We assume that she is traveling by airplane, despite assertions that her trip will be a broom-fueled adventure.
The news came via the magical wonder of YouTube, where the 30-year-old actress dropped the biggest news in witch history this side of who was rocking those ruby slippers (h/t MTV).
Here she is explaining an annual event in St Helens, Oregon, and what makes this particular Oct. 10 so special:
As Brown states, this is an annual affair that will get extra Marnie Piper love in 2015. The official Facebook page for the event was happy to post the news as well:
Now we understand that it’s still September, and you are just getting accustomed to people correcting you when you refer to summer in the present tense.
But it seems as though St. Helens should seriously consider changing its name to Halloweentown on a permanent basis.
As the post above states, you can get more information on the October festivities at Discover Columbia County.
The St. Helens Chronicle also offers a delicious appetizer of promises for the madness that will take place next month.
The report states: “Starting Oct. 1 the city transforms itself into Halloweentown. Scarecrows appear in front of businesses and the community takes on an atmosphere of haunted happiness. While the town has a long and rich history of paranormal activity, it really took on a spooky persona after the original Walt Disney movie ‘Halloweentown’ was filmed at some of its most popular locations.”
The report also lists a bunch of key dates for those who are interested in joining in on all the fun.
There will be a pumpkin carving contest, a four-legged costume race and a glow-in-the-dark disc golf game for kids.
It doesn’t get more family friendly than that. However, you must remember that this year’s fun will be particularly bewitched.
