Haunt The Park

This year the Heritage Society couldn't fill all the porches so the Ferndale Chamber is organizing this event.

The Heritage Society first joined in with the Ferndale Chamber of Commerce to host the first Haunt the Park event in 2015. This event gives families the opportunity to snoop around the outside of the historic haunted houses of Pioneer Park and trick or treat the cabin porches.

In the first year, 2015, we saw over 1,300 people through the gates of Pioneer Park, in 2016 it increased to over 2000. Visitors of all ages are welcomed to come down to Pioneer Park after the Downtown Trick or Treat concludes. Treats are passed out to visitors from six of the decorated log cabin porches by costumed members.

Plan on making this free community event part of your family's Halloween "safe" celebration. It is rumored that a Haunted Barn will join in the festivities.

The 2018 event will be on Saturday, October 27, 2018, directly after Downtown Trick or Treat!
