Fielder's Choice

Fielder's Choice in Bangor, this Sunday, October 23rd, will mark the last day of the season when folks can enjoy outdoor mini-golf or ice cream.

Where they stayed open, through the winter last year scooping ice cream, we're told this year they will close just the Bangor location for the season and reopen sometime in the Spring. The rest of their locations across the state will remain open, but hours will change after Halloween.

It's a good rule of thumb, at this point in the year, that if you're not sure if something is still open, you give a call to double-check. The good news is that while some outdoor activities are closing for the season, others are just getting started!
