Salem will be getting all sorts of adorable and spooky as Creative Salem and Phoenix School host the Wicked Wednesday Children's Costume Parade & Party in Downtown Salem. The parade will start at Riley Plaza and will head up Washington St. to Lappin Park and then head down the Pedestrian Mall to the fountain stage where the kids will have a dance and costume party. At the stage, there will be kids music and performances by some character actors featuring popular costumed character personalities and more.
There is no food at this event. The premise of Wicked Wednesdays was to add some programming but encourage people to frequent the establishments downtown and they will all be open and ready for you! Make sure and let them know that you are out and about enjoying the initiative so we can do it again next year!
Wicked Wednesdays are an initiative to bring mid-week family programming to Downtown Salem to offer more programming and commerce in the area from The Pedestrian Mall to the House of Seven Gables and beyond. Bring the family for mid-week entertainment, musicians, family-friendly walking tours, and interactive events geared for the 12 and under crowd.
