A Grand Parade

2011 Haunted Happenings was ushered in by thousands of school children, families, businesses and friends who paraded through the streets of Salem tonight.  Themed to "Honor those who serve," costumes and floats recognized military, fire fighters, police, and doctors. 

There was plenty of humor and horror to go around, as well.  I especially liked the person dressed as Ronald McDonald, with the sign "Billions served" on his chest. Clever.

Thanks to the Salem Chamber of Commerce for a fantastic event!  Here are some pictures from the evening.

We had so much fun at the parade!! My little ones loved it. I have to say, though, that the float with the "hanging" guy seemed in poor taste, and disturbing. Thank goodness my kids seemed a bit too young to get it, but even I was creeped out. Seems like it should have been edited out. Otherwise we were thrilled and had a great time though!
