Now that you know the best places to trick-or-treat in Bangor, you need the right costume to ensure that you get the maximum amount of treats! Here are some good options:

    Spirit Halloween

    6 Bangor Mall Blvd, Bangor

    Spirit Halloween is now at the old Toys 'R Us building in Bangor. Besides costumes, make-up and fake blood by the gallons, this store also has animatronics that make kids jump back in terror. Of course, it's all in good fun, and kids (maybe not the real young ones) like to go just to see the displays. The zombie babies are pretty creepy, though. Don't worry: they don't bite. (At least we don't think so.)

    Party City

    Bangor Mall

    Party City is located at 480 Stillwater Avenue near the Bangor Mall. They have a ton of Halloween stuff, including party decorations, hanging ghosts and your basic severed hand. And yes, they have a wide selection of masks, wigs and costumes. Would we have included them if they didn't?

    564 Wilson St, Brewer

    New to our list in 2015, Marden's literally has racks and racks of costumes in the middle of its Brewer store, along with a good selection of Halloween decorations and makeup. Better hurry, though. Stuff at Marden's tends to go quick.

    Walmart Supercenter

    Bangor + Brewer

    Walmart Supercenter has two area locations -- one on Stillwater Avenue in Bangor and another on Walton Drive in Brewer. The stores always have lots of costumes from which to choose, and you don't have to break the bank. Kids grow out of their costumes pretty quick, as any parent knows. Or you can always make your kid be a hobo again. It's timeless.

    Target near the Bangor Mall also has a nice selection of kids costumes for reasonable prices. Whether they want to be their favorite superhero or something a little spookier, there are quite a few costumes from which to choose. Plus, you can pick up a plastic pumpkin to hold all your candy!
