To ramp up participation and excitement for the event, organizers are hosting a new addition this year.
The "Purple Pub Crawl" is taking place this Thursday night.
Organizer Ben Smith said "The Purple Pub Crawl has nine or 10 local bars and restaurants in Downtown Bangor that are going to showcase purple drinks or something special that night.
Those businesses will have purple balloons or other signs to let you know they are participating. Each business will donate $1 for each drink sold to the Alzheimers Association.
Visit the purple table in West Market Square Thursday night between 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. Thursday to participate.
