Hike a trail of carved, lighted pumpkins in Maine
The Halloween season is upon us and in Maine, there’s no shortage of incredible events and activities to fill the gap. From haunted houses to trick or trunk events to costume parties, there is something for everyone on Halloween. But if you’re looking for something more casual that can be both family-friendly and a little scary, there’s a Maine farm that has you covered.
Spiller Country Farm in Gorham, Maine will host its second Harvest Walk, a walkable trail with hundreds of hand-carved pumpkins, all illuminated to make the trip extra special. This year, Spiller Country Farm is adding some forks to the trail, with the option to continue on a family-friendly trail or venture onto a fork trail that’s bound to have a few more scares. For those who want to bring smaller children, the main walkway, filled with carved pumpkins, isn’t scary and perfectly fine for small children.
The Harvest Walk Trail opens on Friday, October 7th and runs from 6:00pm to 8:30pm. The trail is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 6pm to 8:30pm every weekend in October through Sunday 30th October. If you need refreshments before or after your journey through the trail, Moe’s Munchies Food Truck is also on site. Children up to the age of 5 can walk the trail for free. Child tickets are $5 and adult tickets are $10.
