Bar Harbor Invasion timeline

For those on the fence or needing additional information to plan your Bar Harbor Invasion, see below for an overview of the time spent in Bar Harbor prior to MINIs on Top.

The first “official” Bar Harbor event starts at dinner on Weds 6/13. You can arrive any time before or after that, though… it is very laid back. In the past, some Invaders have arrived the weekend prior to Bar Harbor’s Kick-off, opting to check out Maine and do some hiking and shopping.

Thursday 6/14: breakfast with the group and then a free day to explore Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, do some shopping, etc. A few of us opted to go to New Brunswick, Canada for chocolate, beer and Tim Hortons donuts. We’ll regroup later in the evening for dinner together.

Friday 6/15: Breakfast in the morning (blueberry pancakes anyone?) and then a group drive around Acadia National Park with a few scheduled stops to enjoy the beauty of the park. It really is magnificient and having many MINIs touring the park gets a lot of smiles and waves! Another group dinner and it is off to bed early because…

Saturday morning 6/16: A 3:30am wake up call! Cadillac Mountain is the first point in the continental US to see the sunrise, so we pack up our MINIs and head to the top of the mountain for the sunrise (on BHIo6, we actually SAW the sunrise!)

Once the sun is up, we fall in line and head to Loon Mountain, for the kickoff of MINIs on Top! We arrive around 11am and begin the MoT activities which include a group drive around the park, a little free time to explore the area and then back to Mt. Washington for a picnic dinner, raffles and the sunset drive up the mountain (one of the coolest things i have ever done!). MoT is over around 8pm and you are on your own from there.

Also, please note that anyone doing BHI with us will get a full itinerary with maps and agendas upon arrival. We won’t leave you hanging!
