Halloween in Salem

Trick or Treaters

Salem, Massachusetts is an interesting place to visit, especially in October.  The residents really know how to throw a month-long party, and all are invited. 

Live Music

There’s live music and lots of costumes.  You never know who or what might appear around the next corner. 

Live Street Performances

Ghostbusters Street Performers

Street performers entertain the crowds.  We were fortunate to see the ghostbusters arrive in their famous Ecto-1 ambulance.  “I ain’t afraid of no ghost.”

Salem Cemetery

Wander the streets and cemetery by lantern light on a haunted walking tour. 

Good Witches

See a bronze statue of Elizabeth Montgomery as Samantha Stephens from the television show, “Bewitched,” or conjure up a little magic of your own during a Halloween photo shoot. 

Hocus Pocus Films

Hocus Pocus

Take a trolley ride around town to see numerous historic sites as well as film locations from both of Disney’s “Hocus Pocus” films. 

While visiting Salem, my mom and I noticed several unique Halloween decorations.  Here are a few of our favorites…


Two Ghosts

In a place with such a long history, there are bound to be a few ghosts. 

Pumpkin & Witch

Lucite Pumpkin & Witch

This pumpkin makes spooky sounds and appears to glow in sunlight.  The orange-haired witch holds a bouquet of shooting stars and a friendly bat. 

Goblin & Crow

Goblin & Crow

The goblin looks perfectly happy for a night of trick or treating, but the crow appears quite annoyed to be wearing his pumpkin costume.  More than a few of his tail feathers are ruffled. lol

Mom Ghost & Baby Pumpkin

Ghost Mom Baby Pumpkin

This one is my mom’s favorite because she loves mother and child themes.  We have always loved celebrating Halloween with decorations, costumes, and parties.  Lots of warm memories are attached to this popular holiday, and this adorable figurine bring them all to mind. 

Metal Spider Candleholders

Metal Spider Candleholders

Here’s an important travel tip: If your carry-on bag contains spikey metal objects, it’s going to be searched! lol.  An airport security guard carefully unwrapped the odd-looking objects.  When he saw the spiders, he burst out laughing and held them up to share the laughter with all the guards and passengers.  It’s still one of my favorite Halloween memories. 

Thanks for reading! 

Happy Halloween & Happy Crafting!
