The Salem’s So Sweet Festival is one of my absolute favorites. I *love* going around and checking out all of the ice sculptures, taking pictures of each one to be shared here on my blog the same day. If you are planning a winter trip into the witch city, I’d strongly suggest planning it around this festival. Details are per Salem Main Streets.
