Halloween activities in Central Maine (Piscataquis and Penobscot counties)? Scroll down this page and you will see the
all of those in Central Maine (Piscataquis and Penobscot counties), sorted by county. Some are
farms, where you take a hay ride out into the field, others are elaborate farm
stands with mountains of pumpkins and other activities and some are simple
roadside stands. Most have loads of pumpkins to choose from. To really make it
fun for your kids, look for those that have the extra activities, like a corn
maze, spook house, or hayride. There is usually a small fee for the mazes (of
course, the more elaborate mazes tend to charge more. Hayrides are often free.

Updates for December 2019
Most pumpkin patches and corn mazes usually open by mid September, some
earlier! You may also like a
local zombie event or Zombie Paintball!. The world's best
pumpkin pie recipe is here, and the
crust recipe is here! And we have
canning, preserving, drying and freezing directions. You can access many
pumpkin and other recipes and other resources from the drop down menus at the
top of the page or the site search.
NOTE: Many of the farms are dropping their websites and switching to Facebook pages - but they don't tell
anyone, including search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo or us, or redirect their website, thus breaking all links to them. If a link is broken
please click the "click here to report a broken link or blank page" so we can find the replacement link! Thanks!

Christmas tree farm (and enjoy a bonfire, smore, hot chocolate and
