The Portland Observatory is excited to welcome trick-or-treaters and their families on October 31 from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. Mrs. Emma Crosby Moody (the wife of Lemuel Moody, the founder of the tower) will be on hand to welcome visitors and hand out candy. Be prepared for some spooky surprises at the country’s only Maritime Signal Tower. First floor ONLY of the Observatory will be open and decorated. Take advantage of this off-season opportunity to enjoy the Portland Observatory!

Munjoy Hill is the place to be on Halloween.  The Munjoy Hill Neighborhood Organization is making sure lots of house and businesses are ready for any vampires, ghosts, royalty, animals, or werewolves that might be out and about on October 31. 

Here is the info from MHNO: "It's Halloween on Munjoy Hill & We Need YOU! ~ We're getting FRIGHTENINGLY close to All Hollows Eve and wanna give our little boys and ghouls plenty of choices while skipping, spooking and flying around the neighborhood in search of treats. Please sign-up to be a Halloween Hill House! All you'll need to do is turn a light on, pass out a little candy and allow us to add you to our trick-or-treat map. It's a great way to bring trick-or-treat back to the Hill while making things a little safer for our little ninjas, vampires and princesses. Please contact to put your name on the list; then just grab your candy bowl and celebrate a fun (and SAFE!) Halloween!"
