Spooky October Things on the Oregon Coast

Ghost, goblins, pumpkins, black cats, witches and more are no strangers to the Oregon Coast during the month of October. Spooky or not, it’s all right here for singles, couples, mom & dad and kids!

The Mahaffy Ranch, right here in Coos Bay, offers U-Pick Pumpkin Patch where you can grab your buddy or your kids and head over to pick out your own pumpkins. There are also various activities to participate in during this Harvest Season time.

You can participate in “Pumpkin’ Chunkin’” by building your own contraption for chunkin those pumpkins!

If you are a fan of home-grown goodies, you won’t want to miss the Farmer’s Market in downtown Coos Bay! Vendors offer fresh veggies and fruits, locally fresh-caught seafood, homemade jams and candies, arts and crafts, photography and more. The market is on Central Ave. West of the Visitor’s Center and open from 10 am to 2 pm.

Coos Bay offers two safe Trick or Treat venues where parents know their kids will receive safe treats. The downtown businesses participate with Treats for Tricksters. They hand out treats from 3 pm to 6 pm on October 31st—look for the giant orange pumpkin poster in windows of participating businesses. You can also pick up a list of locations at the Coos Bay Fire Department at 450 Elrod Ave.

The Pony Village Mall also offers a Safe Halloween for the kids on October 31st from 5 pm to 8 pm. Lots of treats, free Cotton Candy and a Free Cake Walk. There will also be a costume parade. There are lots of opportunities for everyone to have a Safe Halloween time!

The most Spooktacular event of all will be “The Addams Family Musical” presented by the On Broadway Thespians from October 14th – 30th at the Liberty Theater.
