It's a Surreal and Absurd weekend at the Peabody Essex Museum

Visit the Peabody Essex Museum this weekend to step into the surreal!  Their weekend festival, The Surreal and Absurd, will allow visitors to experiment with Surrealist techniques, experience dreamlike films and make friends with odd creatures from Big Nazo*. All activities are included with museum admission and take place between 10:30 am  and 4:15 pm.

A celebration of the surreal will no doubt bring fact and fiction together in a blur of creativity.  What a perfect festival theme for the opening weekend of Salem Haunted Happenings.  I'm pretty sure this is going to be a brilliant beginning to what is bound to be a month filled with the surreal and occasionally absurd in Salem! 

*I didn't know what The Big Nazo was, so I looked it up.  Here's what I found at BIG NAZO is an international performance group of visual artists, puppet performers, and masked musicians who unite to create bizarre and hilarious larger-than-life sized characters, environments, and spectacles. It looks really cool!
