Make plans to visit the Rossi Haunted Ghost Town this weekend
— for fun, thrills, and chills ‚Ä¶
You’ll find plenty of creepy ghosts and spooks and ghouls in, around, and flying over Rossi Haunted Ghost Town this season.
Story and photos by David F. Ashton
One of the best annual Halloween events in outer East Portland is the Haunted Ghost Town at Rossi Farms.
The least scary part of the ghost town is buying your ticket. Dave Kuhn, Mary Brown, Christopher Allen and Vinicio Benois check guests who have come to be scared.
Supports a good cause
“This is our biggest fundraiser for the Drug & Alcohol Free Senior All Night Party,” Mary Brown, event coordinator, told us. “Lots of kids are involved. We have members of the Parkrose High Dance Team here again this year. And, drama students put on costumes and makeup to provide a scary-but-safe atmosphere.”
Last year, Brown told is, they raised $4,000. “We’re hoping for that much again. Saturday night drew more than 400 guests.”
Our ghostly gallery
We’re not going to spoil the fun by revealing all of the surprises, but take a look at these photos for a preview of the “fun” you can expect this year!
It’s “Thriller” time again ‚Äì and these dancers will give you the creeps!
Looks like Turkey Creek Tom and his gang died and went to ‚Ä¶ ? From the looks of the dynamite bundle he just lit, our guess is he wants to take some new “friends” with him.
It’s Electra, the Electric Girl. In fact, we’re told every thing she has is charged!
Look out! This creepy quartet may scare the nightlights out of you! Remember their motto, “Touch nothing, and it won’t touch you ‚Ä¶ usually.”
It looks like one of ghouls escaped!
