Haunted Happenings in Salem, MA

Salem’s connection to Halloween begins with the tragic events that unfolded during the Salem Witch Trials. The 19 innocent victims who lost their lives in 1692 were not witches, they were only so accused due to Puritan beliefs of the time. The Salem Witch Trials were later revived with Arthur Miller’s 1953 work, The Crucible, and again in 1992 during the tercentenary of the events and the unveiling of the Salem Witch Trials Memorial. By 1982, the City has planned the first Salem Haunted Happenings Festival during Halloween weekend. The festival was an effort to provide family-friendly events for guests who were interested in visiting the “Witch City.” Following the first festival’s success with about 50,000 guests in attendance, the annual event has continued to grow each season, drawing everyone from families, couples, history buffs, and Halloween enthusiasts from all over the world.

Salem Witch Museum

The Salem Witch Museum is a museum in Salem, MA about the Witch Trials of 1692.  The museum is based on the actual documents of the trials.  A multi-sensory presentation including 13 life sized stage settings that re-creates the horrible and truthful events known as the Salem Witch Trials.

Live Performance of “Cry Innocent”

The audience is the jury at the trial of Bridget Bishop, accused of witchcraft. Hear the testimony, ask the questions and you decide the verdict – innocent or guilty?

Haunted Footsteps Ghost Tour

Guided Tour of Niagara Falls & Niagara on the Lake

Nestled in the corner of the Niagara Region just beyond Niagara Falls, the picturesque Niagara-on-the-Lake epitomizes old town charm. Known by the locals as NOTL, this must visit village is bordered on both sides by waterfront with arbour-framed streets among lush boulevard gardens. Wander through the Heritage District as you discover whimsical boutiques, enthralling antique shops and delightful bistros – maybe even a horse drawn carriage or two.

Konzelmann Winery

Konzelmann is Niagara’s only lakefront winery, located on the shores of Lake Ontario. The Winery began in the small German town of Uhlbach, near the turn of the 19th century. Herbert Konzelmann, a fourth generation wine-maker and the first in the family to leave Germany in search of the next perfect spot to grow grapes. In 1984, he discovered one of the prettiest properties in Niagara, along the shores of Lake Ontario in Niagara-on-the- Lake, a spot that reminded him of Alsace, France. Not because of the scenery, but due to the micro-climate, which is similar to Alsace with a wonderful balance of sun, soil, airflow and moisture conditions, ideal for making clean, aromatic, fruity wines.

Oh Canada Eh? Dinner Show

Always Musical and Always FUN! One of Niagara’s top shows, we have been entertaining groups from all over the world at our beautiful Log Cabin Theatre for over 25 years! Our shows combine musical entertainment, comedy and a delicious, five-course, family-style meal. The surprising twist of the show is that the performers are also the waiters and waitresses – so when they are not on stage, they are either taking drink orders or serving authentic French-Canadian meal.

Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights

The Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights transforms Niagara Falls into a palette of breathtaking colour with millions of sparkling lights and animated displays located within the Niagara Parks, Dufferin Islands and surrounding tourist districts. Illuminations include fifteen Canadian Wildlife displays, the Sylma and over fifty trees wrapped in lights in Dufferin Islands, the world’s largest Canadian-American Flag, the light show on the Toronto Power Generating Station, the two-storey tall Zimmerman Fountain, three-dimensional Angels at the Niagara Parks Police Building and a visitor favorite, Noah’s Ark!

Butterfly Conservatory

Located on the grounds of the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens, visitors to the Butterfly Conservatory are transported to a tropical paradise full of lush vegetation, trickling waterfalls and thousands of vibrantly colored butterflies. Over 2,000 butterflies, made up of 45 different species, call this beautiful space home. The self-guided walking tour of the Butterfly Conservatory begins with a short, informative video presentation.
