Don’t be spooked – it’s Halloween time! If you have little goblins to entertain or just want to get in the spirit of things, there is plenty happening all around Dirigo Pines and greater Bangor this time of year!
Pick a Pumpkin
There are lots of farm and pumpkins patches to visit in our area. One local favorite is Treworgy Family Orchards in Levant, featuring a giant corn maze, pick your own apples, fresh apple cider, ice cream, hay rides, friendly goats, and a 5-acre pumpkin patch.
Fright at the Fort, Fort Knox
Consider yourself warned – this one is no joke. The scariest haunted experience in Maine takes place through the passageways of Fort Knox in Prospect every year, and it’s recommended for older kids and adults. For a total scream-fest, check this one out.
The Pirates of Penzance, Collins Center for the Arts
This New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players production is your chance to get carried away by Pirates. Join the band of swashbuckling buccaneers, bumbling British bobbies, frolicsome Victorian maidens, and the delightfully dotty “model of a modern Major-General” for a rollicking romp over the rocky coast of Cornwall. Scheduled for October 20.
Pumpkins in the Park, Bangor
For more grandkid-friendly fun, UCP of Maine hosts an annual Halloween party, coming Sunday, October 23, at the Anah Shriners center in Bangor. Bounce houses, clowns, and trick-or-treating for grandkids to enjoy and an amazing display of jack-o-lanterns to entertain those of all ages.
