Survey online until November 12th, public meeting takes place November 25th 6:30pm at CLC

The 2019 Salem residents’ Haunted Happenings and Halloween survey is now online at The survey seeks to gauge resident feedback on the events, public safety response, public information distribution, and more all related to both Haunted Happenings and Halloween in Salem. 2019 marks the tenth year that the City has collected this feedback. It will be online until 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 12th.

A public “after action” meeting to gather feedback in person will take place on Monday, November 25th, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Mayor Jean Levesque Community Life Center at 401 Bridge Street. The feedback meeting will be held in an “open house” style: residents are invited to stop by any time between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. to meet directly with City departments involved in planning the various aspects of Haunted Happenings and Halloween, and offer their input and comments. Those who are unable to attend are invited to submit their feedback and input to or by writing to: Office of Mayor Kimberley Driscoll, Salem City Hall, 93 Washington Street, Salem MA 01970.

“We incorporate public feedback from our residents into our Halloween and October planning every year,” said Mayor Kim Driscoll. “In all, Halloween 2019 went extremely well and that was in large part due to the input – and patience – of Salem residents. I hope all residents will take a few minutes to complete the survey so we can continue to improve how we manage October in the years ahead and, if they able, to come to the public input meeting on November 25th.”
