Halloween in Kennebunkport and Kennebunk is freakishly fun, for kids and for kids-that-never-grew-up. Just drive around town and see the crazy, scary, silly scarecrows and pumpkins for a hint of how spirited the Kennebunks can be.
You might even see some local “Sand Witches of The Kennebunks” wicked fun women dressed in witchy attire pub crawling about The Kennebunks… a booh’sie tradition among the “desperate housewives of KPT”. Don’t worry these are Good Witches, who do Good Deeds locally all year round.
As for the best decorations, if you’ve never seen Kennebunk’s Summer Street decorated in the dark on old Hallow Eve, then you’re in for a treat … and a trick or two. Local legends tell that many of these grand old Sea Captains’ mansions are haunted… bwahhhh…
