The Salem Chamber of Commerce cordially presented the 21st Annual Salem Chamber of Commerce Haunted Happenings Grand Parade on Thursday, October 6, 2016. This year’s event featured the theme “100 Years of Parks and Play”. This time honored kick off of the Halloween season was full of color, pageantry, music and the enthusiasm of thousands of Salem’s students from kindergarten to college and local business owners.
Highlights of this years parade included a gaggle of dancing witches, a replica vehicle from Lost in Space presented by Salem Arts Association, some amazing costumes from Black Veil Tattoo Studio in Beverly, pirates, ghouls, ghosts, zombies and more!
