I’m so excited to finally be able to announce that I’m returning to St. Helens, Oregon this year to kick off the 2016 “Spirit of Halloweentown” festivities!
Every year, St. Helens (the city where the first “Halloweentown” movie was filmed) recreates the look of the Town Square from the movie complete with the big Jack O’Lantern in the center. This year, I’ll be attending the festival for TWO DAYS of activities, October 8th and 9th. We’ll probably do a Costume Contest, have photo ops in different spots around the Town Square, and of course say the spell from “Halloweentown” with the crowd and light the pumpkin!
I wanted to do things a little differently during the lighting ceremony, so I partnered with GO GLOWIN to raise awareness for nighttime safety, especially on Halloween. We took a huge crowd photo last year, so this year I thought it’d be fun if the whole crowd was sparkling with some extra magical lights to help me say the spell 🙂
GoGlowin.com is offering special light up products to everyone who is coming to the ceremony (or if you can’t make it you’re welcome to get some too 😉 on their website! For a limited time during preorders, if you use the coupon code MARNIE you’ll get a special discount! Don’t forget to check-out their tips for staying safe at night-they are important to remember not only for trick-or-treating on Halloween but every night!
You can watch my full announcement video below and find the full schedule of events on the Sprit of Halloweentown’s Facebook Page.
I look forward to seeing everyone there, and if you can’t make it, I promise to post as much as I can about it on all my social media platforms (thanks, technology). I’ll be posting updates soon!
Happy Halloween! 🙂 KJB
