October is our family’s favorite time of the year! The Portland area has so many incredible events for getting into the Halloween spirit. We love making the trip to Sauvie Island for pumpkin picking and the unpredictable corn mazes. We always make sure to fit in at least one visit to the Halloween Trail at Wenzel Farm in Oregon City, and we enjoy the annual Enchanted Trail at the Micha-el School.

We always carve pumpkins while we watch the movie Halloweentown. It was filmed in St. Helens, so it’s fun for the kids to recognize the different locations. We make the same chili every Halloween before we go out trick-or-treating. It’s the same chili recipe that my mom has been making every Halloween night for 25 years!
