Fall fun is about to take over the L.L. Bean campus in Freeport, ME. 

Thousands of pumpkins will be carved (and lit at 5:00 PM rain or shine), a costume parade led by Miss Maine, face painting and children’s games, live music and Mad Science of Maine will fill the afternoon of Saturday, October 19 for those attending Camp Sunshine’s Pumpkin Festival.

All proceeds from the day will go towards Camp Sunshine, which provides retreats combining respite, recreation and support, while enabling hope and promoting joy, for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families through the various stages of a child’s illness.
