Day Trip: Haunted Happenings
Salem, MA
Warren Parks & Recreation
You are invited to America's most exciting Halloween Festival
in the bewitching seaport of Salem, MA. Salem may be most
widely known as the site of Salem witchcraft trials of 1692,
but this is also a colorful coastal city with a rich maritime heritage,
an impressive display of historic architecture and amazing stories
that span almost four centuries. Visit Salem for a "spell' and let
your imagination "set sail". We will visit the Salem Witch Museum
which brings you back to Salem 1692 for a dramatic
history lesson using stage sets with life-size figures.

Enjoy lunch on your own and explore the local shops before
we see "Cry Innocent: The People Versus Bridget Bishop" at
Salem's Old Town Hall. The year is 1692 and Bridget Bishop has been
accused of witchcraft and YOU are the Puritan jury. Hear the
historical testimonies, cross examine the witness
and decide the verdict. A must-see for everyone.
