Schedule of Events

6:00am-9:00am: Roll out of bed and come early for the steals and deals at Bar Harbor's finest retail locations for the annual Early Bird Pajama Sale, where those who shop in their pajamas receive even better discounts! 


Watch for the Bed and Pajama Parade rolling down Main Street on their way to Bed Races that follow directly afterwards. The parade will leave the Village Green and travel down Main Street onto Cottage Street before it ends at the head of Rodick Street.
