KINGFIELD — The 2016 Bicentennial celebration continues with the Kingfield Ghost Walk set for 4-8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22 (rain date: Oct 23).

Festivities start at 4 p.m. with a Pumpkin Freshet, a re-enactment of the Freshet that took place in 1869 where pumpkins were carried down the river by heavy rain. This year, children of Kingfield will be asked to release the pumpkins over the dam by the Centennial Bridge at 4 p.m., the event is hosted by Bobby Brown.

The guided Ghost Walk tours will convene at the Herbert Hotel, starting with a Ghost Table Talk to share ghost stories.

Guides will take groups of people on the walk covering several neighborhoods for ghostly stories around town. Along the way participants can be entertained by a Fire Bender and the historical ‘Talking Pumpkin’.

Kenric Charles’ horse drawn wagon will be available to take participants to various points along the route as well.

After the walk, participants can make their way to the top of Winter’s Hill and enter the cemetery, for the Riverside Cemetery Walk. Attendees will be greeted by many Kingfielders who have passed on, but want to share their stories.

Throughout the evening, a Witches Dance will be performed near the Skowhegan Savings Bank. This is a large group of witches, performing their own choreographed version of witch dancing to the music provided by Victoria Parker.

Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring a flashlight.
