Halloween chairlift rides at Camden Snow Bowl

Pearl Street trick or treat tradition is cancelled this year

CAMDEN — Chairlifts at the Camden Snow Bowl will turn into an outdoor costume ride on Halloween, Saturday, Oct. 31 from 1 to 4 p.m.

The ski area is hosting the new event to give children and families a fun and socially-distanced outdoor experience this Halloween.

Tickets are free for costumed riders age 17 and under. The cost is $10 for adults and $5 for age 70 and over.

The Snow Bowl has offered fall foliage chairlift rides each Sunday through the month of October.

Snow Bowl management and staff put their heads together to create a safe, fun and family-friendly Halloween event, after the Pearl Street trick or treat tradition was cancelled this year, due to concerns about large gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In prior years, the town of Camden has supported the Pearl Street event, with the Camden Police Department blocking off the street and stationing officers to maintain traffic and pedestrian safety.

Town officials posted guidelines for safe trick-or-treating on the town of Camden website camdenmaine.gov.

Families and children who are going out on Halloween are encouraged to trick or treat in their own neighborhoods and avoid crowding around areas where treats are being given out.
