Ghosts, goblins, witches, wizards, zombies, and more will be wandering the streets of downtown Bangor on Saturday, October 31 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the annual Downtown Bangor Halloween Trick or Treat. This event is a safe way for families to trick or treat during daylight hours at businesses throughout downtown Bangor. A map of participating locations will be available in West Market Square along with a complimentary trick or treat bag provided by Eastern Maine Medical Center. With 42 businesses and organizations signed up to participate, this year is the biggest yet!
“Downtown Halloween gives people the opportunity to experience downtown for fun, family-friendly trick-or treating and explore businesses and organizations they may not have known about prior to the event. And, as the holiday season approaches, we hope people will remember the dedication of these businesses to supporting the community and, in turn, shop locally to support small business and keep our neighborhood, downtown vibe strong,” says Caitlin Brooke, Downtown Coordinator for the Downtown Bangor Partnership.
