Haunted Happenings Grand Parade

October 3, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The 24th annual Haunted Haunted Happenings Grand Parade will take place on Thursday, October 3. The parade has long been a special nighttime tradition for the city of Salem and visitors alike to officially kick off Salem’s Halloween season. Over 10,000 spectators (children, adults, and those in between) enjoy the color, pageantry, music, and enthusiasm of the annual parade.

Volunteers are needed to help with the parade. Volunteer duties can include:

  • Giving directions
  • Organizing a section of the parade (getting the 10-12 different schools/businesses in the right order for the parade)
  • Walking the parade/carrying a banner in the parade
  • Assisting the Salem PD with crowd control on the pedestrian mall (if we have enough volunteers).

We ask volunteers to arrive at Shetland Properties between 5:15 and 5:30pm. The parade will be held rain or shine, so make sure to dress according to the weather!
