Costumes, candy and fun for everyone will be coming your way!

You gotta love the idea of Trunk-Or-Treat. A bunch of parents get together, deck out their trunks with cool Halloween decorations, and let the little ones go from car to car, collecting treats. This has become a popular new trend over the past several years, and there are three events coming up that you will not want to miss. And since we will have a somewhat return to normal after 2020, it will be a great opportunity to get the kids dressed up for some fun. And of course, lots of candy.

  • The Ellsworth YMCA will host their event on Saturday, October 30th, from 5pm-7pm, at 238 State Street, in Ellsworth. For More information, you can call 207-667-3086
  • The Blue Hill YMCA will hold their Turn-Or-Treat event, on Halloween day, October 31st, from 2pm-5pm, at 32 Mines Road, in Blue Hill. For more details, you can call 207-374-5358
