Portland’s Harvest Happenings 2016
Fall is here and so is the fun that comes with it! Here’s a brief guide for 2016’s fall festivities, including pumpkin patches, haunted houses and corn mazes in the Portland area. There is plenty of safe, spooky fun to be had!
Described by many as the scariest haunted houses in Oregon, Fright Town is “a whole city block of screams and shock.” The haunted houses are designed to scare adults and older children alike, and they do their job well. The haunted house tours are open throughout October, and you can visit frighttown.com to see if the event is right for you and/or your family.
Maze at Sauvie Island
The corn maze at Sauvie Island is open now through October 31st. This year, they’ve teamed up with Peanuts Worldwide to bring The Great Pumpkin to Portland by hosting a Charlie Brown-themed maze! Visit portlandmaze.com for more information.
Haunted Pub Tour
Throughout October, BeerQuest Walking Tours takes guests on a 2.5-hour haunted pub tour through two of Portland’s most historic bars. Enjoy beer tastings and ghost stories as you learn about the city’s eerie past. Visit beerquestpdx.com to schedule a tour!
Boo! Cruise with Portland Spirit

It can be tough to find a safe place to trick-or-treat in the city. Thankfully, our neighborhood is the perfect solution! We’re inviting all Hassalo on Eighth residents to put on your best costumes and trick-or-treat throughout the community. (If you’re not a resident, you should be! Check out our floor plans here.) For those of you who choose not to trick-or-treat, we encourage you to hand out candy at your apartment! In the coming weeks, we will supply concierge with Halloween-themed paper cutouts that you can place on your door to indicate that you are ready and waiting for trick-or-treaters.
Have a happy, festive October and a safe Halloween!
