, home of the Salem Witch Trials
of 1692, milks its macabre past throughout the month of October each year. Though the period of witch hysteria in Salem is far from a proud moment in America's past, Salem's modern celebration of Halloween is all in good fun. The annual month-long Haunted Happenings
celebration features ghostly guided walking tours, haunted houses, costume balls, street fairs and much more.
Of course, the very height of the celebration comes on the last day of the month--Halloween! There's no better place in all of America to watch the spooks go by.
I was in Salem on Halloween in 1999, and I'll take you there with this photo tour featuring pictures of the best of the scary sights. Join me... if you dare!
