One thing that took a little while to get used to when I first moved to Spokane was the cold weather in October – and winter costumes! Cold weather wasn’t the norm in Phoenix, AZ, and so the idea of a winter Halloween costume was just a concept – not a reality.

If you’re looking for good Halloween costumes for adults, kids or even pets, definitely consider the weather in Spokane! By October, the temperature typically plummets, and you can expect temperatures in the 30s (low) to the mid-60s (high).

What typically would work in a warmer climate won’t exactly work here. While you could go with a warm weather costume, chances are you’d have to layer – and then that means no one can see your fun costume!

If you’ve been looking for cold weather costume ideas, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. Here are our best recommendations for cold weather costumes to wear in Spokane neighborhoods and the surrounding areas!

Halloween in Spokane

In general, Halloween in Spokane is very popular! From locals dressing up their houses (and yards) to be spooky cemeteries or zombie lairs to ‘trunk or treat’ events at local churches, people in Spokane really enjoy Halloween.

Maybe it’s the fact that there is (typically) no snow on the ground, maybe it’s the candy sugar rush, or maybe it’s just all the cute kids out, but people in Spokane are usually really nice and receptive on Halloween.

All that to say: if you want to dress up yourself and your house and go all out for Halloween, you’ll be in good company! Take a look at this informative video from local news station KREM all about some of the most haunted spots around Spokane:
