Haunted Walking Tour: Downtown Camas

The Downtown Camas Association is hosting the first-ever Ghosts & Spirits Haunted Walking Tour of downtown Camas, just in time for Halloween! Experience a one-hour guided walking tour through downtown Camas while hearing riveting, ghostly stories that have been collected by downtown building owners and merchants over the years—as well as mediums who have done readings downtown. Tourtakers will be pleasantly spooked by paranormal folklore about downtown buildings, with a lively dose of Camas history thrown in for good measure. Locations include the old Georgia Pacific Mill, Camas Antiques, Arktana, Camas Gallery, and other locales where strange goings-on and otherworldly sightings have been reported. The tour is presented by White Light Paranormal Insight and sponsored by The Wild Hair.

The tour will end at Salud Wine Bar with more ghost stories. Tickets are $15 per person, and the price includes treats and two “spirits” of the alcoholic variety. Tickets are expected to sell quickly and the tour may, in fact, sell out. There are two tour times offered: at 6 p.m. and at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 21. The tour starts at Camas Gallery, 408 N.E. 4th Ave in downtown Camas, with your first “spirit” of the evening, and the tour ends with another “spirit” at Salud Wine Bar. This is an outside tour, so make sure to wear comfortable shoes, dress for the weather, and bring an umbrella, just in case! Registration is required. To sign up, visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ghosts-spirits-downtown-camas-haunted-walking-tour-tickets-37960614219. If you can’t attend on Saturday but are interested in future walking tours, email events@downtowncamas.com.

Arsenic & Old Lace & Camas Antiques

Come to the Liberty Theatre in downtown Camas to see Frank Capra’s classic Halloween comedy-mystery, “Arsenic and Old Lace” at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 14—then stick around after the film for a movie trivia treasure hunt, treats, prizes, and late-night shopping. Wrap things up at 8:30 p.m. with a special Arsenic and Old Lace Cocktail at Birch Street Uptown Lounge.

Movie tickets may be purchased at the door of the Liberty Theatre. Bring your ticket stubs next door to Camas Antiques after the movie, and be entered for a drawing for a chance to win a fabulous gift basket full of fun vintage items and special things from downtown merchants. Enjoy complimentary treats and join the in-store movie trivia scavenger hunt to win more fun prizes.

While you’re in the store, you can also visit with Camas Antiques vendor Tracey Buxton, author of the lifestyle blog Notes from a Cottage Industry. She’ll share some fall entertaining and décor ideas. Then browse through the store and enjoy all the inspiring seasonal displays and autumn-themed merchandise. Many dealers will be offering sales and specials. For more details, check out the Facebook event page.

Special Mother’s Day Showing of “The Secret Garden” at The Liberty Theatre

When haughty, self-centered Mary Lennox (Kate Maberly) is sent to the English countryside after the death of her parents, she slowly learns to appreciate life, both of the human and plant variety. Filled with gorgeous landscapes and a delicious amount of family secrets, this film is the perfect excuse to celebrate mothers and daughters while sipping on tea and nibbling on treats. Just for the day, the theater will be turned into its own little secret garden as you come to adore Dickon (Andrew Knott), roll your eyes at Colin (Heydon Prowse), and live in respectful fear of Mrs. Medlock (the almighty Maggie Smith).

And here’s a bonus: bring your ticket stubs to Camas Antiques after the movie and enter a drawing for chances to win some wonderful prizes—and enjoy some complimentary Mother’s Day sweets. Eager shoppers can also visit the Secret Garden-themed window display during the days leading up to Mother’s Day for an opportunity to win passes to the film. Movie tickets are $6 each and can be purchased here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1880812915523399/.
