Ghostport Saturday, October 21, 2017! ~ 10am to 10 pm Join us this October 21st for the ninth annual spook-tacular Ghostport festival in downtown Bucksport. Timed to coincide with Fright at the Fort just across the bay, this Halloween-themed event offers something for all ages, from the Lil' Goblins Parade down Main Street to Jonathan Buck’s Race to the Grave.
Whether it’s the spooky or the sweet that you seek, Ghostport is the place for fall fun. Show off your creative skills in the carved pumpkin contest or skip the carving altogether and launch your pumpkin into the Penobscot using our trebuchet. After the sun sets, scare yourself silly at Fort Knox and then take our shuttle back to the waterfront to enjoy music, food and fireworks. Cap it all off with a late night horror film on the big screen! A Wickedly Fun Filled day!
