Halloween Comes to Bowdoin

Story posted October 29, 1999

Little butterflies, Pooh Bears and Robin Hoods delivered pumpkin muffins on campus Friday as part of a Bowdoin Halloween tradition. The pre-school students from the Bowdoin College Children’s Center spent Thursday baking the muffins, then headed out on Friday for Hubbard Hall, the Museum of Art and Moulton Union to deliver them.

And that was just the beginning of Bowdoin’s traditional Halloween cheer, as the social houses geared up to entertain neighborhood children.

Burnett House on Maine Street sponsors a haunted house starting at 6:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Dozens of volunteers have worked to decorate the house and plan the scary surprises. They plan to have students at the door to report to the ghouls inside how old their visitors are. They’ll then pump up or tone down the experience based on the children’s ages.

Baxter House on College Street will open its doors at 4:30 p.m. Sunday, offering candy to trick-or-treaters, and cookies to decorate with frosting. They also will sponsor arts and crafts activities for visiting children.
