Welcome to Halloweentown

Remember the movie 'Halloweentown'? Every October this town recreates the action.

Let's take a walk down memory lane... remember watching the Disney Channel? Well, you also probably remember Halloweentown. The 1998 movie made the small city of St. Helens, Oregon famous. While the small city itself is quaint and friendly, it embodies the essence of Halloween perfectly all month long.

The city began 'Halloweentown' after the movie came out in 1998 and the celebrations and festivities go on the entire month of October. The main plaza area is decorated in all things related to fall and mimics the setting of Halloweentown.

We've had a celebration almost every year since the movie came out... The event has become viral and we have had visitors from all over the country show up into town.
Crystal Farnsworth, Communications officer for the City of St. Helens, Oregon

There are attractions include a spooky haunted house, a museum of oddities, and an annual pumpkin lighting ceremony. It takes the whole year to plan and organize Halloweentown. This year is especially exciting because the cast of Halloweentown will be reuniting in St. Helens to remember the late Debbie Reynolds.

This item was in the movie Halloweentown, now it's in the 'Museum of Oddities.'


"We hope it's something that continues to be family friendly that people feel like they can bring their kids and family here to enjoy for the entire month of October. We would love to be the premiere Halloween destination in America," City of St. Helen's communications officer Crystal Farnsworth said.

The city expects upwards of 10,000 visitors this month to take part in the Halloween festivities.
