This time of year there is no shortage of fun and spooky events to keep you warm on the cold, wet October nights.
Below, you'll find a selection of Halloween happenings across Tigard, Tualatin and Sherwood.
Thursday, Oct. 30 - Halloween Rooms
The night before Halloween, be sure to head to Tigard High Schools annual Halloween Rooms event, on Thursday, Oct. 30.
The yearly event offers 3- and 4-year-olds a safe place to celebrate the holiday. Each room near the schools rotunda is decorated with a theme, from Super Mario to childrens movies like Frozen and TV shows like Dora the Exporer.
Children are able to walk the halls and trick-or-treat from room to room.
Clubs at the school put on the annual event, said Siobhan Egan, 17.
Its like a service project, Egan said. Its a safe and fun environment for kids to trick-or-treat, and it is a fun way to interact with the community and get the word out about how great our school is.
The rooms arent scary, Egan said, they are kept fun.
We dont do anything too scary, or too frightening, said Tigard High School teacher Mckenzie Coulson. Its our way of giving back to the community.
The school will have 25 different rooms around the Rotunda.
Thats a record for us, Egan said.
The kids are able to play games in the different rooms, and of course eat plenty of candy.
Its really fun to see all the kids, Egan said. They love it.
Children of all ages are welcome, Coulson said, but the event is specifically tailored for children from ages 3 to 7.
Its the perfect way for children who cant otherwise go trick-or-treating to enjoy the holiday, Egan said.
Its always cold on Halloween, but we have a nice, warm school, Egan said.
The event goes from 5 to 7 p.m., and is free for everyone.
