Give a dog a skeleton bone
Saint Helens, OR
For those who had a soft spot for Disney’s spooky Horrortown, the town of St. Helens has you more than covered. Claiming fame as the filming site for the movie, St. Helens takes each Halloween as an opportunity to get back into The Spirit of Halloweentown again. The entire town transforms into a haunted wonderland for the month of October, so you and the puppers can take spooky strolls through town, watch unnaturally talented variety shows, and even watch a 5k where entrants are “inspired” by zombie pace-setters! (Race organizers have asked entrants to not participate with their dog for safety reasons, lest your dog do too good a job protecting you from would-be zombie attackers.) But with several decorated trails throughout the town and outlying area, there’s plenty of non-zombie-infested exploring for the two of you to do! Plus, if you’re into costumes, enter your bud into the Four Legged Friends Costume Contest on October 15th and see if they can take home the prize for Funniest, Scariest, or Most Original outfit.
