I know it has been a while. I have been participating in some Fright Nights, doing some cemetery research and doing my own cemetery tours. Sorry to keep you in the dark. I hope the moon has been lighting your path. Now that it is our time of year, it is time to start being busy with my normal weirdo work! Here are a few updates.
1. Salem has a new app for this season that will give real-time updates about road closures, alerts, and "other time-sensitive advisories." The City’s official app is called My Salem MA, for your device and be sure to turn on notifications.
2. Die With Your Boots On has opened a second location at 9 Church St in Salem.
3. The Salem Board of Health requires a negative COVID test be presented in order to enter any indoor party or event for more than 100 people. Salem is encouraging everyone have a COVID test before arriving in Salem. Many businesses, events, and attractions have additional guidelines or requirements specific to them. If you are not able to test before going, a free COVID-19 rapid testing site testing site has been opened at the Peabody Essex Museum Connect Building @135 Essex St on 9/30-10/30 on Wed- Saturdays from 12-8 and 10/31 from 12-5. Allow 2 hours for test results. Appointment times are now open. Schedule your appointment now at cur.tv/salem and find other testing sites in Salem at www.salem.com/testing. Pre-reg is STRONGLY recommended.
4. The City of Salem requires masks to be worn in all indoor public areas at this time.
5. Current Haunted Happenings Events https://www.hauntedhappenings.org/events/2021-10/
6. Dracut Public Library (in partnership with a few other local libraries) has been holding these Virtual Fright Night Series https://www.dracutlibrary.org/events/ that have been fantastic! This past Friday was Halloween Folklore: History, Traditions & Customs' with Roxie Zwicker. It was fabulous. Every week is a different Halloween type theme on Friday night and Saturday morning. I have heard some pretty great talks so far! Check them out!
That is all so for fiendish friends. Stay spooky. And I hope you have deadfull days.
