Around Town: Feeling Festive


Let’s get in the Halloween spirit! Whether you’re in the mood for a spooktacular experience, a cheerful harvest celebration, or just looking for something festive to do with visiting family and friends, this is the perfect time of year for fun and festivities. Dirigo Pine’s convenient Orono location means there’s no shortage of fun nearby – here’s a look at just a few of the wonderful (and frightful) happenings in our area right now…

Treworgy Family Orchards, Levant

Grandkids visiting? Treworgy’s is the perfect place to bring them for a Maine family farm experience. Pick your own pumpkins, get lost in a corn maze, feed the goats, enjoy a hayride, ice cream, apple picking and more!

Fright at the Fort, Fort Knox, Prospect

Looking to get fully spooked? This one’s not recommended for the faint of heart, but if you want the full Halloween experience, look no further than Fright at the Fort – a terrifying haunted house experience through the passageways of Fort Knox.

Pumpkins in the Park, Bangor

For more family-friendly fun, UCP of Maine hosts an annual Halloween party, coming Sunday, October 25, at Cross Insurance Center. Bounce houses and trick-or-treating for grandkids to enjoy and an amazing display of jack-o-lanterns to entertain those of all ages.

Stephen King’s Bangor

What’s more appropriate for the spookiest time of year than a tour around “Derry,” I mean Bangor, visiting spots made infamous by Bangor’s most famous resident, Stephen King. SK Tours of Maine, LLC offers private narrated tours most days, highlighting about 30 spots in and around Bangor.
