Are you a huge fan of spooky season and fall movies? If so you’re probably no stranger to the 1998 Disney classic, Halloweentown. But did you know that you can actually visit it in person and that it’s only about three hours from Seattle?
That’s right, St. Helens, Oregon served as the backdrop for this fan-favorite movie (psst, parts of Twilight were also filmed here) and you can enjoy a Halloween celebration here all month long. Watch as the Riverfront District takes on the Spirit of Halloweentown with a celebration of all things spooky. It’s truly the perfect event for people who love the classic Halloween movie.

Visitors can see some iconic parts of the movie in person like the giant pumpkin at city hall, the movie theatre, the dentist’s office, and more. That means you’ll want to get dressed up because you’ll have tons of photo ops.

This festival has it all when it comes to your spooky season favorites.
