Haunted houses are an all-American tradition! There’s something about the mix of falling leaves, cool air and the approach of Halloween that makes folks creative, crafting experiences that range from Scooby-Doo spooky to absolutely terrifying; we here in Kitsap love them every year.
We’ve already told you about the Kitsap Haunted Fairground, but there are plenty of other family friendly, spookerific activities on the Kitsap Peninsula this October!
Located in Port Orchard, the Therrien Manor Yard Haunt is a fun display of exactly how incredible local ingenuity can be! Inspired by Disney’s Haunted Mansion tour, the Therriens have crafted a family-friendly tour through the exterior of their home with all the spills and chills of the Anaheim original in the Pacific Northwest!
Pheasant Fields is an operating farm that offers educational tours about how people live and work on the farm! During October, they decorate with classic Halloween ornaments, lining their footpaths with creative Jack O’Lanterns and more – but the real draw is Kitsap county’s first living corn maze! It’s a fun, educational daytrip for the whole family.
Featuring one of the biggest corn mazes in the Pacific Northwest, hay bale rides, a huge pumpkin patch and more, Minder Farms Halloween events are a definite must-visit for any family visiting the Kitsap Peninsula. Located in Bremerton, this is a short trip from Silverdale that is well worth taking!
The pumpkin is the unofficial emblem of October and Halloween, and Creekhouse Farms produces the finest in the area! Specializing in heirloom varieties of squash and pumpkins, they are even able to grow personalized pumpkins with special messages emerging in the flesh of the fruit itself!
The season for personalizing pumpkins is over, but you can still visit Creekhouse for a haunted walk through some of the most abundant pumpkin fields in the state!
Of course, when you spend a day in the crisp air of fall, it’s always nice to return some where warm and cozy. The Best Western Plus Silverdale Beach Hotel has a welcoming fireplace in its lounge, and comfortable beds that are extra cozy in the fall! Book your room today!
