Ghost Walk & Halloween Fun. We’re Only a Ghost Town in October!

October brings frightful fun to Concrete. Travel back in time to the early 1900s, when Concrete was a lawless village of miners, loggers, mill hands, and cement plant workers as you experience Concrete’s haunted Ghost Walks. Or try your hand at our Murder Mystery Trivia night. On Halloween itself, the community puts on a Halloween parade, party and Trunk-or-Treat for all the ghouls and goblins in town.

October Events in Concrete, WA:

Concrete Ghost Walk

An event that began in 2006 continues to give visitors thrills and chills while learning about our history. Come travel back in time to the early 1900s, when Concrete was a lawless village of miners, loggers, millhands, and cement plant workers. Where there were more brothels than churches and plenty of hardworking, hard-living characters. Those people are long gone, dead, and forgotten…or are they? On some October nights, you’ll see evidence to the contrary. Get ready to journey into a world of creepiness as you experience the Concrete Ghost Walk!
