Bangor's Art Walk

"On a warm evening last September, downtown Bangor was bustling with people, map in hand, going from location to location. No, Halloween hadn’t come early, but the anticipation in the eyes of people strolling the streets was reminiscent of kids trick-or-treating. Not knowing what is behind a gallery door can be an exciting quest. For businesses that stayed opened during the official downtown Art Walk, the continual foot traffic increased sales. For restaurants, new customers were enthusiastically welcomed."
