Halloween 2011: The Bewitching Past and Present of Salem, Massachusetts

Salem, Massachusetts is already geared up for its month long " Haunted Happenings ." The Salem Police Department is expecting crowds of up to 100,000 to visit the "Witch City" the night of Halloween alone, and numbers almost as large the weekend before. Full Story

I was in Salem on Sunday Oct 16 2011 and I was visiting from Texas. We were asking a young lady where my daughter and I could buy tickets to the ghost tour. As i looked at my daughter a guy walks by and put his hand on her breast. We were shocked no police anywhere around. The guy just walked away, as i yelled out to him, he never looked back. We were alone visiting your town, all we felt we could do was just leave. It was very disappointing that there were no police or security of any kind. Just be careful.

I've been to Salem many times - including during October. I've never known anything like this to happen, however keep in mind that during the month of October there are thousands of tourists in Salem. Shadow is correct - this could happen anywhere that has a large crowd.

Even though it's physically impossible for their police to be everywhere at once, or to predict where a crime is about to occur, surely there was a police dept where the crime could be reported?

*** Serious Question Please ***

Is Salem MA the best place to meet single witches? I am wishing to find a gorgeous long very long haired pretty brunette wiccan witch - etc.

I had a witch do some spells for me awhile back and hope it will assist. Any local witches care to comment if you are reading this ?

PS - maybe I should take a trip there this halloween, 2012 ? Never been to Salem, MA.

Thanks ...:)

Salem is a wonderful place....there were no witches in Salem and the whole witch thing is all tourist fodder...my ancestor Sarah wildes was hanged as a witch there in 1692 , but she was no witch...it was all mass hysteria...Salem has other great things in its past...the first kindergarten in America....the first millionaire in America....the first candy store in America..
