Posted October 21, 2019

Get your Spooky On!

We’ve scoured and found some of the best places to celebrate this spooky season in Kitsap County and Gig Harbor with friends and family!  McCormick’s mystical woods coupled with the morning fog rising from Kitsap County’s harbors provide the best backdrop to make these days extra exciting.  We share our favorite events and activities below.

Kitsap Haunted House

Kitsap Haunted Fairgrounds

One of the most popular places to go is the Kitsap Haunted Fairgrounds which never seems to disappoint.  Located in the middle of the fairgrounds, come find the spooky warehouse and all it has to offer. All ages are welcome, and be prepared for all different types of scares!

Bainbridge Island Thrilling Theater

Enjoy a live theater production of the Rocky Horror Picture Show at Bainbridge (Island) Performing Arts.  This live theater on Bainbridge Island is less than an hour from McCormick.  Get ready to be thrilled – “let’s do the timewarp again!”

Cheery Kitsap County Pumpkin Patches

Visit the large variety of Pumpkin Patches spread across Kitsap County. One of the most popular is Creek House Farm. Pick your pumpkins from a local farm right in the area! Buying local is charming and so is getting to choose your pumpkin from hundreds of options.  At Creek House, you will also enjoy farm animals, a pumpkin play patch, and hayrides or pumpkin barrel rides.  You can even attempt to hit a target pumpkin with water balloons using a slingshot!  As with any great patch, get lost enjoying their maze.  Pumpkin patches are also fantastic places to take family photos.

Get Lost in Bremerton’s Corn Maze

For an elaborate corn maze adventure, check out the Corn Maze at Minder Meats Farm in Bremerton.  This incredible maze is sure to get you lost enjoying our great outdoors.

Harvest Fest at Miracle Ranch

Miracle Ranch in Port Orchard is a beautiful setting for a favorite fall family outing.  The Ranch promises activities to keep you in the spirit with their Harvest Fest.  Free activities include Hay Wagon Rides, Face Painting, Hay Maze, Archery, Boating, Rodeo, and an old-time apple press.  What fun!  Pony Rides are available for a fee.  Come hungry, they offer amazing meals (for $10 a person or $40 for 4) of pulled pork, hot dogs, slaw, beans, chips, cookies, and drinks!  Caramel apples, cotton candy, kettle corn, and pie will also tempt your sweet tooth.  To savor the season, enjoy a cup of fresh apple cider.

Celebrate Close to Home at the McCormick Woods Clubhouse

The McCormick Woods Clubhouse invites all ages to their annual Boo Breakfast.  There will be Halloween-themed breakfast, mini pumpkin decorating, sweet treats for costumes, and a photo station! Tickets are: $18 for adults, $10 for children 6-12, and free for children 5 & under. Reservations are required – reserve your table here!

Trick or Treat!

Last but not least, get your costume on and trick or treat from the unlimited amount of locations around McCormick. Here are some great options!

  1. Stay local and make your away around our charming, safe, and serene McCormick neighborhoods for some yummy treats.
  2. Head over to Downtown Bremerton for a trick or treat street event where kids make their way from shop to shop getting candy. It is Downtown Bremerton’s 23rd Annual Trick-Or-Treat Street and will take place on Halloween night from 5:00pm–7:00pm. The city shuts down car traffic in parts to make a safe area for your small ghouls, goblins and fairy tale creatures to roam safely.  Enjoy free trick-or-treating, a family haunted house and more.  Free parking will be available at the garage on Washington at 4th Street.
  3. If you want a little taste of Norwegian twist on Halloween, Downtown Poulsbo is another great town that passes out candy and the decorations are there to impress, trick or treating will be on Front street, closed down to car traffic.
  4. The Gig Harbor waterfront shows off its spooky beauty for their annual Trick or Treat in the harbor on Halloween, complete with a haunted house!
  5. Kitsap Mall is another destination if the fall weather may be too chilly, take the kids inside to trick or treat at Mall-o-ween. Come to the mall from 5-7pm on Oct 31st for a fun, safe, and warm experience!  Free photos will also be offered.

Wherever this spooky season takes you, we wish you well on your haunted adventures, and hope to see you at home in McCormick!
