October Preview: Events in Seaside, Cannon Beach Astoria
(Seaside, Oregon) – Fall on the Oregon coast still means a fair amount of beautiful weather, at least until the middle of October. In recent years this has lasted a little longer into the month, so it’s quite possible that the fun of Halloween, various food fests and doggie events won’t be the only reason to frequent the beaches.
