UCP of Maine's pre-Halloween family fun night has a superhero theme, so trick-or-treaters are encouraged to don their capes.

When I was little, Halloween was one night, when you walked door-to-door in your neighborhood, hitting the neighbors up for candy. But now, there are so many options for Halloween fun, that kids can wear their costume over and over. I have to admit, I'm a little jealous. Especially since this one is inside. I always wore my costume under my winter coat, so no one could see it. Now, kids can show them off to everyone and still stay warm!

This is the 16th Year that United Cerebral Palsy of Maine has hosted Pumpkins in the Park, that offers indoor community Halloween fun for the entire family. It's great family fun, and the proceeds benefit a great cause that helps children and adults with physical and intellectual disabilities.

From noon til 5 p.m. Sunday, at the Anah Shrine building on Broadway in Bangor, everyone is encouraged to dress up as their favorite superhero and do some trick-or-treating, while making their way past hundreds of glowing jack o'lanterns. The event will also feature Anah Shrine clowns, a photo booth, face painting, prizes, a bounce house, and other surprises.

Admission is $3 per person or $10 per family, with kids 3 and under admitted for free. Tickets will be available at the door. But anyone who wants to skip standing in line with impatient kids can buy tickets in advance at the UCP of Maine office, 700 Mount Hope Avenue, Suite 320 in Bangor.
