Families and Halloween fans throughout Central Oregon embrace the spirit of the season – put on your costumes, pets too – and join the Halloween fun in the Old Mill District Monday, Oct. 31!

Come celebrate all things ghoulishly delightful at the Old Mill District this Halloween for our annual family-friendly Halloween party, which returns after a two-year hiatus. From 4 to 7 p.m. our shops will be handing out candy and various treats for little ones, Jeff Jensen of The Reptile Zone Oregon’s oldest and largest reptile store will have creatures onsite, we’ll have photo stations for capturing memories, and don’t forget about the famous pet costume contest with guest judges from our friends at the Humane Society of Central Oregon and Central Oregon Daily News!

Old Mill District Halloween Party

In addition to trick-or-treating, Monday’s Halloween bash will include various activities throughout the district. 

  • The Humane Society of Central Oregon will host a pet costume contest in Center Plaza, so be sure to think about your furry friends and get creative! Costume contest participants can win as much as $100 in Old Mill District gift cards.  
  • The Reptile Zone will set up a pop-up shop in the vacant space next to Vanilla Urban Threads, complete with snakes, turtles, and more.
