The Snoqualmie Valley offers family and young-child-friendly activities for the Halloween weekend, and the holiday itself, as well as more gruesome activities aimed to get older participants' goosebumps going.

Creepy or just gently spooky options include:

Halloween farm walk

Come out and walk in woods, farmland and town on an autumn day during Remlinger Farms’ “Halloween on the Farm” event, Saturday morning, Oct. 26. Remlinger Farms is located just off S.R. 203, at 32610 N.E. 32nd, Carnation. Start anytime between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Parking is free, and so is the walk. Walkers in costumes are eligible to win prizes.

This is a family-friendly event, with alternate routes of 5, 10 and 15 kilometers. The walking is on good trails, with no significant hills. There should be lots of fall color in the woods, and Halloween decorations at the farm and in town. The farm store and café with sandwiches and soup will be open. Remlinger will be staging its annual Harvest Festival with activities for the family.

Treat harvest in downtown Snoqualmie

Snoqualmie’s downtown treat harvest is 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31. Families with children age 5 and younger are welcomed downtown, in costume, where they can visit and gather treats at local businesses.

Snoqualmie Ridge trick or treat

Trick or Treat on Snoqualmie Ridge is 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, at Ridge businesses. Families should begin by picking up a passport and treat bag at the Sno Falls Credit Union at the Ridge IGA.

Visit participating businesses with the passport, and collect stamps and a treat. Finish at the Snoqualmie YMCA to turn in the passport for a special treat, play carnival games and jump at the bounce houses. See a flyer at www.ci.snoqualmie.wa.us.

Haunted inn

Welcome to the Si View Inn—it is not really haunted. Or is it? The Si View Haunted House is Friday and Saturday, Oct. 25 and 26, just one of a slate of Halloween events for youth and grown-ups in the Valley.

The entire Si View building has been transformed from a welcoming community center to a haunted inn. This event is rated 3G for Gory, Gruesome and Graphic, and is not recommended for the very young. Friday hours are 9 to 11:30 p.m., (after the Mount Si Homecoming game) and Saturday from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Admission is $4 at the door.  To learn more,  call (425) 831-1900 or visit www.siviewpark.org.

Si View Pumpkin swin

Just like the drive-in, but wetter, Si View’s Pumpkin Patch Swim & Dive-In Movies are 4:30 and 6:15 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, at the Si View Pool. Come pick your pumpkin from a patch in the pool. (Yes, they float) Splash around the pool and enjoy a Halloween movie suitable for all ages. Children under age 6 must have an adult accompany them in the pool. This event sells out, so pre-register early. Cost is $7 per person.

Halloween Train to the Depot

Give your Halloween costumes a test run on the Halloween Train in the Valley this fall. Gather the family, suit up in your costumes and take part in the fall festivities at the Snoqualmie Depot on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 26 and 27.

Trains depart every 90 minutes beginning at 11:01 a.m. from the Snoqualmie Depot at 38625 S.E. King Street and at 11:26 a.m. from the North Bend Depot at 205 McClellan Street. Roundtrip fares are $10 for children ages 2 to 12, $15 for adults, and $12 for seniors age 62 and older.

Benson Barn Carnival

The 2013 Harvest Carnival is 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 27, at the Benson Barn, 14120 424th Ave. S.E., North Bend. Food, fun and games for all. Dress up for the costume contest, participate in one of the many craft projects, bring a pumpkin to decorate. Take the cakewalk, and bring a recipe for the chili cook-off. Bring an item for the North Bend Food Bank as a donation.
