Halloween in the US in a cultural experience unlike any other. 

Besides the night-of-festivities: which usually involves dressing up in costume, here a few things that you should definitely do on your first American (Spokanite) Halloween


I’m from Southern California, so finding a Pumpkin Patch in San Diego is like finding a needle in a haystack. Living in Eastern Washington, however, means we are near a large rural community, and there are many places to go pumpkin (and apple!) picking during the fall. There are a lot of farms that offer do-it-your-self picking for all sorts of crops. Here is an Apple Festival that I found surfing the web, but there are a ton more!!

Recently, OGI took a group of students to the Greenbluff Fall Harvest Festival.  They had Pumpkin Land, live music, crafts, giant corn maze, snacks and refreshments

  1. Take advantage of places that show old school horror films.

This year Spokane is showing the 1922 silent film adaption of Dracula on Halloween night. I think it may be worth a peek.

  1. Scarywood Haunted Nights

This link to Scarywood Haunted Nights explains how the theme park is transformed into the Haloween Spooky experience of a lifetime.

If there are other spooky spokanite things around this time of year, leave it in the comments. I can update the list as I get more things.
