Wrapping Up Our Tour....

This school was used in Hocus Pocus too, with a different name.


Salem Witch Museum

Very cute trash cans.


More skulls!

So many people were dressed up!  We saw a Frankenstein that was elaborately done, Chewbacca, this Minion and a whole host of others.  And just regular people showed up in cosplay as well.  By this time of the day, 2 pm, the city was gridlocked with traffic and it was a mob scene.




This is the Ropes Mansion and it was used as Allison's house in Hocus Pocus.

A wee, narrow green house.

Another witch type musum



Didn't get a cone, but I thought the name was cute.

And my last pic of the day, this cute little bird playing a musical instrument.

I hope you all enjoyed this Halloween tour of Witch City!

  1. Not sure what all the skulls have to do with witches, but enjoyed your picture tour. Only thing, it occurs to me that all those witch trials were a tragedy for the poor witches.

    1. Well it's the whole Halloween genre, and spooky stuff. Plus November 1st is the Day of the Dead. I have a lot of friends into skulls too.

  3. I always enjoy your local tours, JoJo, and would love to tour the witches museums.
    I think my fave costume was when five women at work dressed as a witches coven one year with witch hair and rubber ugly masks (there was a contest) I admit, I liked cackling like a witch. . .unfortunately didn't know any spells.

  4. I'm envious. We have nothing like any of this around here. You live a fun life, and I appreciate you sharing your outings.

    Happy Halloween-time, my friend.

  6. It looks like an amazing place to explore. They sure have capitalized on the whole witch theme!

    1. Yeah it's sad in a way but it is part of Massachusetts history so might as well get some tourism cash infused into an otherwise run down area.
