We will be coming to Salem in less than 2 weeks. We are going whale watching in Gloucester at 1:30 but would hope to be in Salem by 5PM that evening. If we park next to the visitor center that gives us the remainder of that night/evening to wander around Salem. We have plans to do a ghost walk as well. Will all of the festivities still be going on and will one evening be enough to at least "experience" some of the Halloween madness that goes on in Salem? We will be there 10/20 and going later that night to our hotel in Danvers.
