“(All the events) are all cool, of course, but Wanderlust Circus should be pretty exciting,” said organizer Carlee Wright.
“I think it is [the circus’s] first time in Salem & we have an awesome venue, the Grand Theatre, which really adds to the retro flair of their show.”
Wright also mentioned the event series has brought back popular activities like Rocky Horror Picture Show at 8 p.m. on Saturday, October 27 (tickets $10 at BrownPaperTickets.com) and a Zombie Flash Mob at the State Capitol to kick off the festivities at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, October 19.
