Salem has become one of the biggest hot spots to celebrate Halloween. The monthlong festivities include costume contests, trick-or-treating, fairs, psychic readings, and haunted houses.
More than 250,000 people visit Salem in October, taking in a monthlong array of “Haunted Happenings,” and at least 75,000 more come on Halloween night.
The Haunted Happenings Grand Parade on Thursday, October 3, kicks off the month of activities.
