Halloween in Salem, MA

By
Education & Training with Sparta Success Systems

As promised, here are the photos from my visit to Salem, MA on Halloween. 

Salem

There were thousands of people in the streets, many in costume.  There were a variety of activities for the day, but we spent our time wandering about and people-watching.  And it was totally worth it to be people-watching. 

 

Oz

Hippy mime

  Dracula and Witch

The thing that struck me most clearly is how much of the '80s are coming back.  I've never felt so old in my life.  As a child of the '80's (I graduated in '87), I had flashbacks all night, whether it was the Ghostbusters car complete with Ghostbusters

Blues Bros and Kelle 

 

                           

                              Or The Blues Brothers

 

            (I couldn't resist getting my picture taken with them)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Morticia And Gomez

 Breakdancing

 

 

 

      There were even BREAKDANCERS!!! 

That's a sight I thought I'd never see again!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And then there was this guy - who seemed to enjoy posing for my picture almost as much as his french fries

The Joker

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                     All in all, it was a great time. 

 

  A perfect precursor to my birthday night of seeing
           
Wicked, the musical (which also rocked).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                          One last shot - I couldn't resist.  These guys had absolutely the best costumes

PIRATES!

Great shots!  Thanks for sharing (hard to take pix at nite).  I went to Salem during the DAY and it was a scary place, between the witch trials and the House of the Seven Gables and all that. 

And that Boston-esque accent - real terror there (or was it terrah theya?)

It felt eerie to me.  To go there on Halloween - THAT was brave!
