Witchfinder of Salem 2017
Its been a busy year for The Official Witchfinder General of Salem, MA! With the exception of one or two minor incidents of annoyance, it's been a great year so far! There's only one weekend left so I do hope you'll come visit. I'm happy to report that I am quickly becoming a popular attraction in town. Several tour guides have approached me to tell me that they recommend me to all their tour groups. I'm always worried that my repeated antics and dialogue will become tiresome to the store owners and street vendors I set up near, but even their reaction has been universally positive; they often say I'm very entertaining to watch and make their day go by quicker. As for the tourist themselves, they have been very generous with their praise and encouragement. It is not unusual to have tourist come up and say they were disappointed by one of the MANY "witch museums" in town. They tell me they learned more and were more entertained by my little show than anything else in town! In case you think I'm making it up, behold this comment left by a woman who I "put on trial" . She was so happy with my show that she searched me out on-line and left this comment on an earlier blog post:
"My husband and I visited Salem Oct 14 2017. We were sorely disappointed by pretty much everything in Salem. Waaaay too many people, too long of lines for everything, atrocious parking. Except you, sir. The experience of being put on trial was fun and you portrayed the part very well. The only entertaining part of our visit in Salem. Thank you for being the highlight of our day."
