Halloween in Maine has changed over the years, instead of hitting the streets in a ghostly sheet with a matching pillowcase as a candy sack, kids are going Trunk or Treating. These events are considered a little bit safer, some are held inside so that bad weather doesn't keep the candy away and it's easier to keep an eye on little ghouls. Here's a list from Macaroni Kid of events in Southern Maine:

  • Today, Sunday, October 22nd going on now till 5P. Play fall games, paint a pumpkin, take a pony ride, trunk or treat and much more at Camp Ketcha in Scarborough.
