Are you looking for some safe and fun Halloween activities for you and your kids this Jack-O-Lantern season? Well here are some local ideas you might want to check out.
Come enjoy some "boo-tiful" classical music, dress in your favorite Halloween costume and join us for some "Spooktacular" kid-friendly fun. Riverview Community Bank proudly presents The Portland Columbia Symphony Orchestra's Symphonic, “Safari Goes Halloween”, October 25th at Parkrose High School, 12003 NE Shaver St, Portland at 3pm. Engage in hands-on pre concert arts, crafts, and activities.
And watch as the, “The Sorcerer's Apprentice” comes to life with puppets from Tears of Joy. Don’t miss this fun for the entire family! Then you can head to downtown Gresham where every year The Historic Downtown Gresham Business Association blocks off the Gresham downtown Main Ave between 1st and 5th for a safe trick-or-treat event to celebrate Halloween. Bring the kids and join other families on Main Ave, Saturday October 31st from 4pm-6pm and and get candy from local merchants who are staying open to hand out tricks and/or treats.
And from there venture on over to Greater Gresham Baptist Church, 8848 NE Division, Gresham, for their “No Tricks, Just Treats” event, 6pm-8pm. With games and cupcake decorating, hot cider, hot chocolate and coffee too, you’re sure to find something for the whole family.
“It's late and we are sleepy, the air is cold and still. Our jack-o-lantern grins at us upon the windowsill. We're stuffed with cake and candy, and we've had a lot of fun, but now it's time to go to
bed and dream of all we've done. And we'll dream of trick-or-treating on this happy Halloween”.-Author unknown
