Pumpkins in the Park
Each year Bangor Federal participates in the United Cerebral Palsy of Maine’s Annual Pumpkins in the Park at the Anah Shriner’s building.
Pumpkins in the Park is an indoor community Halloween event for the entire family. 2017 marked the second year Bangor Federal has participated in this event, and we continue to be grateful for the work UCP of Maine does for those in Maine who are affected by cerebral palsy, a congenital disorder of movement, muscle tone, or posture.
The 2017 theme was “Games Galore” and attendees dressed up in costumes that represented their favorite video game, board game, or game show. At the event, attendees enjoyed warm and safe trick-or-treating at the business-sponsored pumpkin patches. Bangor Federal was happy to sponsor a pumpkin patch this year, and even had employees attend with their children.
Samantha, our Branch Manager from the Brewer location, attended Pumpkins in the Park with her three children.
“Where Halloween falls on a weekday, we only go out for about an hour to houses we know. I always try to hit up events like Pumpkins in the Park or Trunk or Treating. It’s a quick, safe, fun event the kids can dress up for,” Samantha said. “Helping a cause like UCP is also a win, win.”
Along with trick-or-treating, the event also featured the Anah Shriner clowns, a photo booth, face painting, prizes, a bounce house, and much more. Bangor Federal was happy to participate in this event for a second year and will continue to sponsor a pumpkin patch at this event to support UCP of Maine and give the children in our community a safe place to enjoy Halloween.
