If it's haunted, it's happening here

More than 150 events this month in Salem

(Continued)

Cinema Salem will host “Scary Mary and the Audio Corsette,” an event Fox describes as “a 1980s rock horror spectacle.” It will run Saturdays at midnight. The R-rated program will have live music and a film created and directed by Kevin Letourneau of Salem.

Also new this year is a program called “Witch Hunter” at Pioneer Village, a living history museum set in 1630. The village will open on Saturday evenings, Oct. 13, 20 and 27, so people can walk through and get a first-hand experience of Salem’s witch hysteria.

This Saturday, Oct. 6, is the Zombie Walk, when locals dress up as the undead. Zombies will meet at Collins Cove Beach on East Collins Street at 3 p.m. and then head through the city. Afterward, several events are planned to raise money for the Wounded Warriors Project, a nonprofit that aids wounded veterans.

On the other end of the spectrum, family-friendly movies such as “Hocus Pocus” and “Bedknobs and Broomsticks” will be shown every Saturday night at 6:30 on Salem Common. On Oct. 28, a special trick-or-treat event will be held at 5 p.m. on Pickering Wharf, followed by a children’s party at Finz restaurant.

“People are being creative and inventing new events (for Haunted Happenings),” said Fox. “People come back (to Salem) to do their favorites, and it adds so much to the experience to have the new things as well.”

Destination Salem compiles all of October’s events, as well as maps and other information, at their website, www.hauntedhappenings.org. They’re continually adding updates and events to the calendar.
