Fall: For visitors getting up before sunrise to watch the morning sun peak over Cadillac Mountain is a good reason to rise early. Locals in Bar Harbor have an even better reason. The much anticipated annual Early Bird Sale and Pajama Party which has been going storing for the last 12 years. Each year this event keeps getting larger and funnier with more and more businesses joining the fun and activities. Some of the best sales of the season happen during 6 am to 9 am in the morning. The locals love it and visitors are sure to find some wonderful gifts in these speciality stores, art gallaries and gift shops. With discounts up to 50% off in some stores you are sure to fill your Christmas gift list with some great items and not have to break the bank doing so. As a treat the stores offer shoppers free hot chocolate and treats. Shoppers can earn an extra 5% off just for showing up in their pj’s.
