Beetle Juice and his wife Lydia made the trip from Florida. “I think it’s great. Everybody has been awesome, we can make it about 15 feet before people start taking pictures of us,” he said.

Kelly Queen was in town from Detriot. “It was my daughter’s idea to do Sanderson sisters. It’s our first year here so we decided to do that because it’s the 25th anniversary,” of the Hocus Pocus movie, she said.

Another woman in full costume said, “We’re having a beautiful night, yes the weather is perfect, and what I find about Halloween in Salem is it’s more about the costumes and less about the trick or treating.”
