Halloween in Salem: It begins

Halloween Scenes 035, originally uploaded by dmoisan.

Tonight is the beginning of the busiest five days of the year for Salem: Halloween weekend. Halloween falls on a Wednesday this year. Almost everyone who comes for the holiday, does so as a day trip, so many different people will come.

The crowds tonight were moderate, more like the crowds on Halloween night were 10 years ago. I don't attempt to navigate the crowds on that night, but I'm going to the fireworks at Salem Depot, since I live nearby.

I have an opinion on Halloween in Salem and its effect on the "character" of the city that I'll express in another post.
