Salem, Mass., known as the “Witch City,’ brews with lots of family during October with Salem Haunted Happenings.

A famous fall tradition in New England since the early 1980s, Salem Haunted Happenings features many free and affordable events and attractions. For those on a budget, there will be Salem Trolley tours, street fairs, parades, a Halloween costume contest for dogs and cats, a magic show, concerts, psychic readings, a Halloween-theme car show, face painting, haunted harbor cruises, ghost tours, food and “spirits,” and family fun days with interactive inflatables, games, entertainers and more. That’s just for starters, there’s so much more going on in Salem for those on a budget or those that are in a position to spend more on events and attractions.

I highly recommend logging onto the Haunted Happenings web site to learn more on this wonderfully entertaining month in Salem!
