(Oregon Coast) – Looking to scare up a good time on Halloween along the beaches? You're in for a treat, as numerous towns along the Oregon coast serve up fun for the adults and kiddies – from the bars to the family-friendly festivals of treats.
Here's a few highlights. All take place on October 31, unless otherwise noted.
From October 29 – 31, it's the Scare-CROW Haunted Maze Fundraiser in Florence. Chains will rattle, doors will creak, ghouls and boils will howl with delight, and even brave adults might find themselves trembling in the dark abyss. 3 p.m. Fee: $4 per entry, $14 nightly. CROW Theater. 3120 Hwy 101. Florence, Oregon. 541-999-8641.
On the central Oregon coast, Newport has three different celebrations for the kids throughout town.

Halloween night in the Deco District of Newport is a howling good time. The event is for costumed kids under 13 with accompanying parent or guardian.
