Maine Halloween 2023
We may be over a week removed from Halloween, but we're just now seeing some of the iconic costumes dawned by the staff of a popular Maine business, all of which pay tribute to some legendary Christmas characters.
The Roaming Speakeasy Co.
According to its official website, The Roaming Speakeasy Co. is "an unforgettable bar experience" utilizing "Maine's horsebox bar," which, basically, is an actual horse trailer that has been converted to a legitimate bar.
Mainly used for weddings or other special events, according to the official website, The Roaming Speakeasy Co. offers five different bar themes (which are actually five different converted horseboxes/vehicles):
The Lemon Squeezy - A 1977 restored horsebox that adds a unique, fun atmosphere to any event.
Hegan - A restored 1954 horsebox trailer with one bar that can be utilized two different ways; have two bartenders on hand to serve drinks, or turn the taps around for a self-service tap wall.
Midnight Bourbon - A sleek, black horsebox with a wood finished exterior that turns heads anywhere it goes.
Bella - For the prosecco lovers. A small van providing prosecco that's perfect for weddings, bridal showers, or corporate events.
Betty - Shown above, the newest member of The Roaming Speakeasy Co. fleet that is a small, but mighty, converted camper van.
Iconic Christmas Characters
Literally the day after Halloween came and went this year, cable channels began flooding their airwaves with Christmas movies. Back-to-back showings of Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Fred Claus, etc.
And it was almost as if those stations took a page out of the staff of The Roaming Speakeasy Co., who channeled their inner Christmas spirit by dressing as legendary characters like Kevin McAllister, The Grinch, Rudolph, and more for Halloween this year.
Speaking of Christmas and The Roaming Speakeasy Co, by the way, according to its Instagram page, DIY Christmas card sessions are available in different locations around Maine on certain dates, using one of their gorgeous converted horseboxes as the backdrop.
