Don’t Miss The Most Magical Halloween Event In All Of Maine
If there’s one thing that screams Halloween in Maine it’s the appearance of pumpkins. Pumpkin patches, pumpkin-flavored everything and pumpkins sitting outside the grocery store ready to be picked up and loaded into the car. The large orange fruit (or is it a vegetable?) means it’s fall and just around the corner is Halloween. One of the best ways to prepare for the season is by carving our pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns. The only thing more celebratory is attending this jack-o-lantern festival in Freeport, which also happens to be the best pumpkin glow in Maine. It’s a fun day in one of the state’s most lovely towns and it supports a great cause.
