After a couple of slow years due to the pandemic, they say they are expecting crowds to be out in full force ready to party.

“We have a photographer coming down here to set up a photo booth with some giant 2023 letters that people can take their pictures with. Pretty much every bar and restaurant is planning to have entertainment, activists, and swag to give away. I think the really the revelry will be at pre-COVID levels,” said Betsy Lundy, Executive Director of the Downtown Bangor Partnership.

The New Year’s Eve events start in the morning with a 5K Finale Road Race in West Market Square at 9 a.m.
