Halloween isn’t just for the kids! If you’re over 21, you can let out your inner zombie, superhero or ice princess at many of Yakima Valley’s wineries! Join the fun and wear your costume to trick or treat for wine at the Rattlesnake Hills Wine Trail “HalloWINE” events! Many wineries are offering free tasting to those in costumes, so you don’t want to miss out!
COME CELEBRATE HALLOWINE!
Here’s what’s going on at our local wineries this weekend!
Decked out in their spookiest costumes, over 200 riders and their horses from The Back Country Horsemen of Washington will be haunting the trails of our lower Valley wineries all weekend!
Visit Silver Lake Winery, Reflection Vineyards, Bonair Winery, or Mary Hill Winery in costume and receive a free wine tasting. Enjoy live music, food for purchase, and don’t forget to enter to win the best HalloWINE costume contests!
Tanjuli Winery will be selling delicious Los Hernandez tamales and salsa on both Saturday and Sunday!
Dineen Vineyards will be offering authentic Neapolitan pizza crafted by Chef Chris Guerra of Guerra's Gourmet!
At Naches Heights Winery the whole family can get in on the fun! The adults can enjoy wine tasting while the kids decorate cookies, paint pumpkins, and enjoy games and a cake walk from 2:00 p.m. -5:00 p.m. (Cost: $3 per child).
For another chance to win a prize for your great costume, plan on attending Kana Winery's Halloween Party in Downtown Yakima! The live music starts at 7:00 p.m. and goes until 10:00 p.m. with local favorite, the Stimulus Package!

THERE’S SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE THIS HALLOWEEN!
Looking for something the whole family can do? Many places throughout the Valley offer traditional family harvest events, such as the haunted corn maze in Union Gap, the Zombie Haunt in Wiley City, Thompson's Farm has kids’ activities and the Pumpkin Cannon out in Naches, and Bill’s Berry Farm in Grandview has tons of harvest activities for the whole family!
Start your weekend in costume on Friday, at Ghoul's Night Out at the Yakima Valley Museum! This fundraiser for Northwest Harvest is an all ages event, featuring a costume contest and dance, with live music by The Five-O-Nine Band. There will be prizes, refreshments and children's games for admission of $5, or $3 and two cans of food.
On Saturday, catch the Halloween Trolley, offering a free pumpkin for the first 100 kids that dare to ride! The cost is only $6:00, and it’s open from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The cities of Yakima, Selah, Sunnyside, Grandview and Prosser have planned celebrations to help make it easier for mom and dad. Instead of driving through neighborhoods, take the kids to some of these fun activities for the easiest Halloween ever! There will be haunted houses, music, treats, entertainment and prizes for best costumes throughout our communities! Most of the cities’ events are happening in the early evening, so there will still be plenty of time to head home and trick or treat!
The Downtown Yakima Spooktacular Halloween event on Front Street takes place in the afternoon from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. with treats galore and live entertainment for the whole family.
Prosser will have its first ever Zombie Walk in downtown starting at 5:00 pm.
Selah will have trick-o-treating in participating downtown businesses on Friday from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., and a special Saturday party from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Civic Center. Bring the kids to fill their bags with goodies!
We hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween – or HalloWINE– this year!!!
