The Great Salem Pumpkin Walk

As part of the Haunted Happenings Wicked Wednesdays initiative, the purpose of this family friendly event is to unite the Salem business community in an effort to drive midweek visitors, sales and engagement. Participating locations designated as "anchor zones" around the downtown perimeter will manage a public pumpkin display with opportunities for visitors, tourists and locals alike to create, play, and enjoy.  

All businesses and organizations are encouraged to participate and will be listed on a walking map distributed to visitors. 

Possible activities and entertainment could include spooky story readings, live music, traditional Halloween games, tarot readings, pumpkin carving and art-making.

A map will be created to signify designated pumpkin clusters and participating businesses creating a casual, self-guided scavenger hunt with the support of a hashtag campaign.

All participating businesses will be included on the walking map if submitted before the print deadline.
