November 2015 Happenings on MDI

Downtown Bar Harbor, Saturday, November 14th beginning at 6AM

Fall is definitely here and the streets of Mount Desert Island are quiet – so quiet, in fact, that now the locals can run around in pajamas and push beds down the middle of the road! And be rewarded for it! How awesome is that?? Don’t miss the fun – Saturday, November 14th beginning at 6AM.


Work on that looming Christmas shopping list at the Early Bird Pajama Sale – wear your pjs and enjoy even bigger discounts at Bar Harbor’s retail shops until 9AM. Shop Local!!

After you have shopped for both the naughty and the nice, pick up a hot beverage and line up along Main Street to watch the Annual Bed and Pajama Parade at 10AM – cheer on the creativity and imagination of local folks showing off their best “just rolled out” look and size up the competition for the bed races as the Parade winds by, then pick your spot to watch the Bed Races, beginning at 10:15.


Always a crowd favorite, teams of 5 from area businesses and organizations decorate and race their own themed bed. Prizes are given for “Fastest Bed” and “Best Decorated” but the real fun is watching your friends and neighbors – in crazy Pajama attire – trying to hang onto a runaway bed as they push it down Main Street!
