The Great Salem Pumpkin Walk

  • The Witch House 310 Essex Street Salem, MA (map)

Salem invites you to explore the historic and haunted downtown district for a special self-guided tour of pumpkin displays, activities, and entertainment.

Here's how it works:

1. Come to Salem! Parking at the MBTA station in October is always the best option. Here are a few more.
2. Grab a map. They will be available at the Witch House and the Info Booth on the corner of Washington St. and Essex.
3. Explore the city! Use the map as your guide! Dogs are welcome in general, but not at all locations. Be sure to check with the staff member or business website. 
4. Win a prize! Visit ten locations and fill up your map with stickers to win a free Goosebumps prize at CinemaSalem!
5. Take a sneak peek! Be the first to see the new Goosebumps movie for the East Coast premiere beginning at 8 PM. Order tickets now.

Use #salempumpkinwalk when posting your pics on social media. We'll feature the best ones all month long!
