COVID-19 couldn’t stop the communities in our area from getting creative and flexing their imaginations to provide some fun for everyone this Halloween season. Here’s a snapshot of what’s going on this year:


TREATS ON MAIN – Held this year at the Hermiston Community Center, businesses will be stationed in the parking lot along a snake-like route. Simply prop your trunk open, place your bags in the back, and candy will be dropped in as you drive by. No registration is required and dressing up is highly encouraged!

October 31, 2020, beginning at 4 PM.

PUMPKIN CARVING CONTEST – Decorate your own pumpkin and enter it for a chance to win one of the grand prizes! Pumpkins that are entered in the contest will also be on display during Treats on Main. To be eligible, make sure your pumpkin is dropped off at the Hermiston Community Center before October 30.


2ND ANNUAL HERITAGE HAUNT – The Heritage Station Museum will be conducting a drive-thru Halloween event with characters dressed up and themed scenes throughout the parking lot. Come dressed in costume and receive a goodie bag at the end of the route!

HALLOWEEN DRIVE-IN MOVIE – Pendleton Parks & Recreation will be hosting a showing of the classic Halloween movie, “Hocus Pocus,” at the Pendleton Convention Center.
