Halloween Brings Ghoulishly Great Events to Neighborhood Business Districts
Happy Halloween! Portland’s Halloween spirit is stronger than ever with a 25% increase in business district events that are expected to attract more than 10,000 costumed kids and adults. Tonight collect treats on Glisan Street in Montavilla, show off your frighteningly-fantastic costume in Multnomah Village, get into the healthy Halloween spirit in Belmont, explore a haunted house in Beaumont and collect passport stamps for a chance to win prizes in Nob Hill.
Halloween is more popular than ever with an estimated 179 million Americans planning to celebrate this year. That makes Halloween the second largest U.S. retail holiday after Christmas – with spending projected at more than $9 billion. Whatever you plan to spend, get in the Halloween spirit and Fall Into Local, Portland! You’ll find creepy costumes, devilish decorations, sweet treats and more at these family friendly events in neighborhood business districts.
