Just 40 miles outside of Portland, the festival will include haunted tractor rides, a haunted mansion, "walking scared" tours, variety shows, dance parties and photo ops.

Brown, who played teenage witch Marnie Piper in the "Halloweentown" movies, has made appearances in past festivals and is stopping by again this weekend. She’ll be kicking off the iconic pumpkin lighting ceremony, as well as posing for pictures in a replica of the haunted cab from the movie.
