More Spooky Ideas 

  • Scary movies — Stay home and scare yourself. Or if horror is not your thing, check out movies that feature Lane County! Order pizza or pop some popcorn. If you get really inspired make some popcorn balls!
  • Taste chowder in Florence — nothing like sipping warm chowder while looking out over a foggy ocean.
  • Bake an apple pie — Instead of picking pumpkins, pick local apples, then spend Halloween being domestic.
  • Carve your pumpkins — This is good old fashioned fun!
  • Chuck some axes — Oregon Axe offers a unique sport for those 12 and up.
