Trick or treat, smell our feet, give us something good to eat, let's all head to Maple Street!

With Halloween just one week away, the leaves, pumpkins, crisp days and cool nights, are all in full effect! The Bangor area has no shortage of great spots to bring the kiddos to collect candy.

Helpful hint: If you were thinking about stopping by Stephen King's West Broadway home, you will come up empty.

In fact, the master of horror has come right out and said, "Don't come to my house on Halloween."

We've done trick-or-treat a few times and we had 600 or 800 - one time we had 1,400 people show up for candy and treats and it's fun, it's great to see everyone, but it wears everybody out and it plays hell with the law so we're not doing that anymore.

Not to worry, there are plenty of safe, and family-friendly places to head out to visit on Halloween night. Growing up, I was an East Side tree street kid, so the long, wide and gorgeous, Maple Street was my favorite, but there are many others to choose from in the greater Bangor area.

Here are the best of the best:

  • Bangor's Tree Streets
  • Little City-Bangor
  • Fairmount Park-Bangor
  • Bangor Gardens
  • Sherwood Forrest-Bangor
  • Westbrook Terrace-Hampden
  • Judson Heights-Bangor

If we missed any, be sure to let us know!

Wherever you head to trick or treat next Monday, traveling in groups to well lit, populated areas of town are always the safest bet for Halloween fun for everyone

Happy Halloween!
