The One Small Town In Oregon That Transforms Into A Terrifying Halloween Wonderland
St. Helens, Oregon is one small town that knows how to celebrate Halloween in style. Every year, this magical community transforms into a terrifying Halloween wonderland. The town, which was made famous by Disney’s
Halloweentown, comes alive during the epic, month-long Spirit of Halloweentown celebration.
Take a look:
The annual Spirit of Halloweentown celebration takes place during the month of October in St. Helens, Oregon.
The town embraces the holiday spirit with costume contests, haunted houses, ghost walks, spooky adventures, and more.
Halloweentown (1998) is a classic Disney Channel Original Movie. The film focuses on the adventures of Marnie Cromwell (Kimberly J. Brown), a young teenager who is fascinated with all things magical.
Halloweentown and parts of the movie Twilight (2008) were filmed in St. Helens.
St. Helens goes all out during the month-long celebration.
They even recreate the giant pumpkin from
Halloweentown in front of City Hall.
The city is open 24/7 and is filled with plenty of opportunities for spooky photo ops.
