….and deranged doings around Portland this Halloween weekend.
As I contemplate my choices of eerie events to participate in this upcoming weekend of heinous happenings, I am most certainly drawn to a few. I will share with you my personal list of what I think any divergent mortal would find satisfying.
- Doll Asylum – Halloween Open House: 30th and 31st. Fridays/Saturdays from 5-10, Sundays and Halloween 5-9pm. Doll Asylum is a Halloween open house that is a cross between a haunted house and a creepy doll museum. There is no admission but if you would like to admit a doll to the asylum, they would be happy to help. This sounds fun to me since I love creepy dolls. I really wish I had a bad doll to send there… forever. Details.
- Tour of Untimely Departures: 5-9pm Saturday, Oct. 29, at Lone Fir Cemetery, SE Stark st., Portland. $10 advance, $15 at gate. Ghostly guides escort groups of guests on one of two candle-lit routes where they meet some of the cemetery’s residents and hear the unusual circumstances surrounding their untimely departures. Who doesn’t love wandering around a cemetery at night getting to know dead people? Details.
- Portland Zombie Walk – Halloween Day, Monday Oct. 31st. at 3-6pm. Free, but you can buy a glow-in-the-dark bracelet to help pay for fees. Starts and ends at Pioneer Courthouse Square. Never miss a chance to don your fetid fashion and shuffle around the city as the living dead! What could possibly be more satisfying? Details.
- West Linn Haunted Trail + Enchanted Trail for young kids: $15 at event.
Repeats every day 2 times. Friday, October 28, 2016 – 7:00pm. At Mary S. Young Park, 19900 Willamette Drive, West Linn. The Haunted Trail is a walk through the woods at night where you will encounter scenes and characters to scare you along the way. Any kind of wandering around at night with creepiness. This is my kind of hiking. Details
I hope you enjoy this, the very best time of year!
