Orono Boo-Fest 2020
Orono's usual Trunk or Treat event will not be taking place this year do to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Instead we will be bringing you something new and exciting: presenting the Town of Orono's Boo Box Delivery Service! A Boo Box is candy-filled delight, delivered directly to your trick or treaters, and anyone living in the town of Orono is eligible to sign up! Households with multiple children can receive one Boo Box per child, regardless of age. So make sure to register all of your ghouls and goblins at OronoRec.org under the 'Events' tab. Boo Boxes will be dropped off by town employees on Halloween, and in the spirit of Halloween, we encourage everyone to show off their best costumes!
As with our usual "Trunk or Treat" event, Orono is proud to support the Teal Pumpkin Project in raising food allergy awareness. Anyone is welcome to request a Teal Pumpkin box, and there will be a place on the sign up questionnaire where you can identify your child's allergies for our Boo Box team.
Through Halloween night the walkway between the Town Office and the Fire Department is transformed into the first ever Orono Boo-Fest Halloween Alley! From grinning jack-o'-lanterns to ghosts and bone-bedecked graves, our little slice of Halloween Country has everything you need for a spooky Autumn stroll.
Take a photo with our resident scarecrow Sammy Strawbones, on his hay bale throne! And don't forget to tag Orono Community Development on Facebook so that we can share all your Halloween selfies.
Join us on Facebook on 24th & 31st for special Spooky Story Time with Mark from the library! Mark will share a different not-too-scary tale each week for your young ones to enjoy. To watch, click here, if you dare!
