Salem Screams for Ice Cream!
Salem’s Ice Scream Bowl is back! It’s time to sample some of the best ice cream in the North Shore from some of the many ice cream shops the area has to offer. Salem’s Ice Scream Bowl event will be held on Tuesday, August 8 on the Salem Common from 6:00-7:30 p.m., rain or shine.
