While there are many places and communities to enjoy an evening of traditional Halloween fun, two favorite haunts in Bend are found in the NW part of town: NorthWest Crossing (NWX) and NW Craftsman Drive, on Awbrey Butte. NWX is a great place for kiddos of all ages to stroll through the community with seasonally decorated and welcoming front porches, nice wide sidewalks, and friendly neighbors offering sweet treats to all. NW Craftsman is known for the awesome decorations on neighborhood homes along with a safe street to enjoy the festivities (as the area is shut down to cars for the occasion).
