Thrills & Chills: 15 Spooky Festivals For Halloween.
Slide Nr 8
Festival of the Dead. Salem, Massachusetts, US. Fear Factor: 4/5 – Infamous for the 17th-century witch trials that led to the execution of 19 people, Salem is a mecca for fans of the macabre and the occult – and at this festival, there’s plenty of both to go around. Have your fortune told at the Psychic Fair, pick up a spell book or voodoo doll at the Witches’ Market, conjure a few animal spirits with witchdoctor Utu, or sup in silence with the dearly departed at the annual Dinner with the Dead. The jewel in the crown of this other-worldly event, however, is the Witches’ Halloween Ball, where magical beings of all kinds can dance the night away.
