Disney's Halloweentown is a classic film that has all the buzz around Spooky Season, and it's actually a real place in St. Helens, Oregon where you can visit.
It's called The Spirit of Halloweentown and has everything that will remind you of the movie set, from City Hall with the large pumpkin outside to the skeleton driving the taxi cab!
The classic was recorded in the city in 1998 and every year the town decorates the Riverfront District as if it never disappeared, giving millennials who visit all the nostalgic vibes.
