Halloween in Salem is a unique experience. People of all ages and from all places come together to basically have a giant party in the streets of downtown Salem. This does come with a few drawbacks like the influx of tourists that we’ve been experiencing all month gets exponentially worse and roads to downtown Salem close around 4pm, making escape impossible from the Halloween fun in the form of fireworks at 10:15pm. Leading up to the big night however there are a ton of fun things to do in the residence halls thanks to the efforts of your building Community Councils.
Here are a list of events going on in the halls leading up to Halloween:
-Peabody Hall: Halloween Dance on Wednesday October 29th at 9pm
-Peabody and Bowditch Hall: Haunted Hallways decorating competitions Thursday October 30th 6pm
-Bates Hall: Fall Festival Thursday October 30th 7pm
