Spooky Season Is Near!

Fall is approaching and that means the City of Portland’s 10th annual Boo Bash Festival is almost here! Mark your calendar for Saturday, October 21 as the 10th annual Boo Bash Festival takes over Joe Burke Pavilion and the Portland Community Center. A night filled with games, crafts, inflatables, and tons of candy! This year, our goal is to have the longest Trick or Treat Trail in Boo Bash history! Also, live music with Monster Mash at Boo Bash! No tricks all treats at the Boo Bash Festival.

 Also coming up in October, meet and play games with our first responders during National Night Out. Swim, bike and run in the Boo Bash Triathlon or find a scary story at Book-A-Palooza! Will if float? Bring your carved pumpkins to Sunset Lake for The Great Pumpkin Float or scare-up a pumpkin spiced treat at the Portland Farmers Market. Stay tuned for more information. Let’s have a Spook-tacular Halloween Season!
