Fall has finally arrived. It’s a fun time of the year filled with pumpkin flavored treats and creative Halloween costumes. In and around Portland, there is lots for families to enjoy. Let’s explore some amazing October events and activities perfect for you and your family!
Take a Trip to Your Favorite Pumpkin Patch (all October long)
Visiting your local pumpkin patch often means much more than simply picking the perfect pumpkin for this year’s jack-o-lantern. Pumpkin patches offer all sorts of fun from petting the farm animals to enjoying a hayride to riding a train to eating pumpkin enhanced treats. And, of course, after you’ve enjoyed all the activities and picked your favorite pumpkin, make sure to have a pumpkin carving competition with a prize for the best jack-o-lantern idea.
Take a Walk at the Halloween Fantasy Trail
The Halloween Fantasy Trail at Wenzel Farm is decorated with lots of fun and spooky sights and sounds to enjoy. You can also explore the 40 foot castle complete with Halloween scenes, as well as a tunnel, crooked house, maze, and suspension bridge. You can even enjoy refreshments and pick a pumpkin from the patch while at the farm.
