Hillsboro, OR Halloween Happenings

We’re less than a week before Halloween so it’s time to get serious about finding fun things to do. We did a little internet searching for activities in our area whether you’re a looking for family fun or an adult outing. Let’s see what we found!

Harvest on Main Halloween – Downtown Hillsboro

The Hillsboro Downtown Partnership is changing things up this year by partnering with the Hillsboro Farmers’ Market to extend the last day of the market season. Main Street is closed to traffic and open for a night of much Halloween and Harvest fun. 10/28

Baggenstos Farm Store – 15801 SW Roy Rogers Road, Sherwood

Free Hayrides for the kiddies, lots of harvest goodness and a corn maze. Call 503-590-4301 for information. The Pumpkin Patch is open 7 days a week until Halloween.

Howloween at the Zoo – Portland Zoo

The zoo provides a fun and safe setting for this Halloween tradition, where costumed trick-or-treaters learn about wildlife in a fun scavenger hunt throughout the zoo. In keeping with the zoo’s mission, Howloween aims to be educational as well as fun. Scavenger hunts and activities are themed to teach kids about animals around the world, and their habitats and adaptations.  Kids can collect treats & prizes at the different stations. Because our everyday actions impact wildlife, the zoo only provides deforestation-free candy. Activities are best suited for children 2-12, but all are welcome. Cost is free with zoo admission.

The Midnight Serenaders Halloween Bash – The Secret Society, 116 NE Russell, Portland

This is a 21+ jazz bash with The Libertine Belles, The Midnight Serenaders, and The Portland Rhythm Shakers for delightful entertainment. For more information, check out the event site here.

Not-So-Scary Halloween- Portland Children’s Museum

There’s no trick-or-treating in the rain when you’re at the Museum. Treat your family to a playful, festive, and not-so-scary day of Halloween fun at Portland Children’s Museum! From 10-2 there are lots of great activities for your little ones. For more info check out their website.

Haunted Trails -West Linn Haunted Trail

West Linn offers two different haunted trails, one that’s scary and recommended for people 8 years and older. One for the younger tykes that is not scary at all. Remember, it’s a trail, you’ll be hiking through the forest and it can get steep!  Information.

We’ve only scratched the surface of the fun activities. Let us know what you end up doing!

Happy Halloween
