The Events and Tourism Committee and the Lincoln Lakes Chamber of Commerce invite you celebrate Halloween in downtown Lincoln.
This year there will be Spooky Selfie Stations around downtown, and a Business Decorating Contest sponsored by the Lincoln Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce.
From 12-2pm there will be a Pumpkin Carving Contest at Veterans Square. Tables will be set up and pre gutted pumpkins will be available. We also recommend carvers bring their previously carved pumpkins to enter the contest. It will be a People's Choice contest, we will have jars for people to vote for their favorite pumpkin.
At 2pm we will have a socially distanced costume parade down Main Street. The parade will start in front of Wing Wah and end at the gazebo.
From 3-6pm we will have our very popular 3rd annual Trunk or Treat hosted by the fantastic Brittney and Melissa Superneau-Hartford. This year to comply with Covid-19 safety, the Trunk or Treat will be on Main St, every other parking space on both sides of the street, and "Trunkers" will be masked and wearing gloves to hand out candy. "Treaters" will go through the trunk or treat one way with volunteers making sure everyone is social distancing.
At 4pm we are holding our first ever "Great Pumpkin Launch" at Prince Thomas Park. This is a Pumpkin Catapult contest. Folks will bring their homemade catapults or trebuchets to the beach and the best overall launch and best design will win a prize! (Get building now!)
From 5-7pm we are having a Monsters Ball at Prince Thomas Park. There will be spooky music and social distancing fun.
At 7pm we are having our SPOOKTACULAR Fireworks Show! Stay in your car to watch the big fireworks show, or socially distance around Mattanawcook Pond and downtown.
Your safety is very important to us. We will be insisting on following the safety guidelines, mask use, hand sanitizer and social distancing is important to keep this event possible.
