Pumpkin patches are “cropping” up everywhere. Do you know what that means? Pumpkin seeds, eating, carving, baking, spice, and most importantly, pie! Most of these are tasty, but pumpkin carving is where the fun is. Pumpkin carving is always a blast and there are tons of creative ideas out there to give you some inspiration.

Interrogate the suspects, collect the clues, and solve the mystery while enjoying a decadent buffet. Join our cast of killers for an unforgettable experience as we present for your entertainment, Clue Live. Fun, food, spirits, and a mystery to solve – all in one memorable night!


Another fun and interesting activity that is unique to Salem is Black Cat Tours.
