New England Fall Events Take Shape at Courtyard Bangor in Maine

Upcoming Fall Festivities, Outdoor Adventures and Special Events Make Bangor a Must-See Stop in 2014

BANGOR, ME--(Marketwired - Oct 14, 2014) - All paths lead to Courtyard Bangor this fall, as the season brings an endless array of events and activities to celebrate the change to autumn. The iconic Bangor Mall hotel invites guests to explore one of New England's richest regions while staying just moments from some of the season's most anticipated events and activities on the fall calendar.

Bangor, Maine is a hub of activity year-round, but this season brings with it a wealth of opportunity for recreation and revelry, just moments from the hotel. Guests are invited to celebrate the season at the Maine Harvest Festival, November 8th and 9th at Cross Insurance Center Arena. The festival celebrates farm fresh foods and ingredients with a focus on some of the region's best known classic cuisine, plus features unique vendors, events, and demonstrations. It's one of the largest events of its kind in the region, with live music, wineries, breweries, and distilleries on-hand, as well as the famous Maine State Fair pie contest.

Near the Bangor Maine airport, the hotel perfectly places guests just minutes from Apple Picking at Treworgy Orchards, where guests can roam the corn maze, pluck their favorite fruit for pie-baking, or trek through the pumpkin patch and pick out the perfect jack-o-lantern. The orchards are a favorite family adventure spot, where kids can take part in hayrides, pet their favorite furry creatures at the petting zoo, and grab a treat at the Orchard Café.

There's nothing quite like Maine during the fall. As the leaves turn, bright beautiful foliage leaves its mark across the region, making for spectacular adventures. Nearby natural wonders like Acadia National Park beg to be explored as the fall foliage hits its peak. Driving tours lead guests through the area's most mesmerizing sights, including Peaks-Kenney State Park, Moosehead Lake, and the tree-lined Kennebec River.

Central to these and other unforgettable events and sights on the fall calendar, Courtyard Bangor invites exploration all season long, while providing guests instant easy access to some of the local fall farmer's markets, rich outdoor activities and all of the seasonal celebrations that take place in Bangor and beyond.
