Best costumes from Salem

Here are the rest of the photos from my trip.  No city beats Salem for inventive costumes and ‘spirit,’ although Manhattan comes close with their Annual Greenwich Village Halloween parade (postponed this year til next week).  Anyone who wants to have a fun time should book their hotel early for next year.  I know I will!  Thanks again to everyone who let me post their pictures.
