  • The Salem Chamber of Commerce cordially invites you to enjoy or participate in the Annual Salem Chamber of Commerce Haunted Happenings Grand Parade on Thursday, October 5, 2023.  The parade will follow the normal route from Prime Group Shetland Park to Salem Common. This year’s event will feature the theme “Myths & Legends”.
    This time-honored kick off the Halloween season is full of color, pageantry, music and the enthusiasm of thousands of Salem’s students from kindergarten to college and our local business owners.  Their participation is what makes this a highly successful, cherished event for our community.
    A special part of the route as is designated as a Sensory Friendly Area for those that are sensitive to bright flashing lights and/or loud music and sirens. Central Street (from New Derby Street to Front Street) will have signage at the beginning and end of the street indicating the beginning and end of the Sensory Friendly Area, and all parade marchers and floats have been asked to refrain from playing music or operating sirens or horns and shut off all flashing lights etc. upon entering Central Street to create a more inclusive, enjoyable environment for all.

    The Salem Chamber is grateful for the financial support of our 2023 parade sponsors:
