On November 12th, at 6am in downtown Bar Harbor, there are going to be some pretty excited shoppers! Every year, Bar Harbor folks gear up for the Early Bird Pajama Sale, where shoppers don their favorite (warm) pajamas, throw on their hats and mittens and run through town, looking for the best deals on all that Bar Harbor shopping has to offer. An early breakfast at Jordan’s on Cottage Street will fuel you up for 3 hours of incredible deals on house wares at Window Panes, trendy scarves and clothing at The Village Emporium, great prices at clothing and gear at the Acadia Shops, and fantastic prices on designer olive oils at Fiore Olive Oils and Vinegars. So many deals, you’ll need to bring a friend just to help you carry all your bags!
There is nothing I enjoy more every year than the first snowfall of winter. Bar Harbor is so quiet during the first storm, especially in the evening, like the snow has muted the world. Looking out from out front windows you see a car go by every once in awhile, sloshing through the snow. It gives me that holiday feeling, like what you had the day before Christmas when you were a little kid. So much excitement and anxiety about the arrival of Christmas and the warm fuzzy feelings of the holiday spirit.
The busy summer season has ended, there’s a crisp feel in the air, and many wonder just what it is about Bar Harbor that makes a fall visit so special? This town may seem to have come to a halt compared to the months of July and August but for those fall visitors who spend time in Bar Harbor now get to enjoy an entirely different vibe from the summer rush and see what this quaint town has to offer.
