CBC to host 2nd annual Halloween Trail of Treats 

MOUNT DESERT — Camp Beech Cliff will hold its 2nd annual Trail of Treats on its campus on Saturday, Oct. 30, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sponsored by Machias Savings Bank, Trail of Treats is a safe community trick-or-treating event. 

Nonprofits on and around MDI are collaborating to help bring this outdoor “neighborhood” to life by decorating cabins along the trail to astonish and delight. There will be a costume contest with fun prizes and participants can vote for their favorite decorated cabin, which will win the coveted Golden Jack-O-Lantern Trophy.   

CBC will be joined by representatives from Acadia Community Theater, Barn Arts Collective, College of the Atlantic Ed. Studies, the Wendell Gilley Museum, Good Shepherd Food Bank, Great Harbor Maritime Museum, the Jesup Memorial Library, Mount Desert 365, Seal Cove Auto Museum, Summer Festival of the Arts and more. 

To keep the event safe as well as fun, COVID-19 protocols will be followed. Masks will be required of all participants while on camp property, and families will sign up for a specific block of time to start their journey through the trail.   

All those who wish to attend must pre-register and spaces are limited. Registration opens Friday, Oct. 15, online at
