It’s finally October and Halloween is creeping up pretty soon. Here are a few ways to get into the spooky spirit.

Visit a local farm

Thomas Family Farm

Located on 9010 Marsh Rd in Snohomish, this is a great place to check out with friends and family. The Thomas Family Farm opened up their Halloween fun starting Saturday, Oct. 6. There are lots of activities like pumpkin picking, corn mazes and monster truck rides during the day.

Evening activities include more fun such as zombie paintball, escape rooms, and a haunted hayride.

Swans Trail Farms

Located at 7301 Rivershore Road in Snohomish, this farm has been open since September 29th with their pumpkins ready to go. Swans Trail Farm is home to the popular live duck races and pig shows. Other fun activities include a petting farm, 50 ft triple indoor slide, gem mining, and pedal karts.

“I love working here. I worked over the summer and the variety of things I do here is incredible,” said Evan Wilcox, 18, a current student attending EvCC. “Come to the farm,” he adds, excited about this fall season. Wilcox has been working at the Swans Trail Farm for four years. He loves his job and the people that come along with it: co-workers and the guest who visit the farm.

Go to a Haunted House

Georgetown Morgue on 5000 E Marginal Way S Seattle, is a haunted house inside a building known for having one of the most horrifying unsolved crimes in Seattle history. The haunted house has been ready to go since Friday, Oct. 5. If the haunted house doesn’t make it scary enough, perhaps knowing the backstory will give you chills. To find out more visit the Georgetown Morgue website 

Another good haunted house is Stalker Farms located at 8705 Marsh Rd in Snohomish. The scare began Saturday, Oct. 6. Make sure to check out their new timed scarecrow challenge they have going. Come with friends or family and be ready for the adrenaline rush from the scare.

Horror Movie Marathons

It’s finally time to start binge-watching all your favorite horror movies. What better way to get into the Halloween spirit? Whether it’s movies you already own or you hop on Netflix, there are many options. Netflix is currently offering a Halloween category filled with all of their horror movies and their scariest shows. If you don’t feel like going out this is a great option.

Costume Shopping

Going trick or treating? Going to a Halloween party? Entering a costume contest? A costume is most definitely needed. There are endless possibilities to what you could dress up as this year. There are many stores that offer great costumes such as Party City with two close-by locations in Marysville and Everett or Spirit Halloween with locations in Marysville, Everett, and Lake Stevens.

If those aren’t a good match or you don’t find what you’re looking for, there is always online or thrift shops as well that can provide new and used costumes for endless make-it-yourself combinations. It’s the time of year to pretend to be someone or something else for the night so might as well go all out.



October won’t last forever so make sure to grab your boo, friends, or family for some thrilling Halloween experiences.
