October is here! It's a most wonderful time of the year in Salem, and the first weekend was a beautiful start to the month of festivities.
If you are planning a visit to Salem to celebrate Haunted Happenings, you'll want to visit our festival web site at HauntedHappenings.org and download the free iPhone App.
Here are a few new family-friendly events for 2010 that are worth checking out:
Wizardly Wonders at the Witches Cottage... This magical show for children features a friendly wizard who takes the audience through a wonderful world of magic, wizardry, and Halloween fun!
