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.
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!
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!”
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.
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.
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.
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!
