Dozens of events take place August 1-11 across the City
Mayor Kimberley Driscoll announced that Heritage Days will begin on Thursday, August 1 and continue through August 11, 2019. Heritage Days begins with some great programs for seniors at the Community Life Center and the first weekend kicks off with the 31st Annual Maritime Festival, featuring live music, harbor cruises, and interactive programs.
Once again, the Salem Police Department has organized a local celebration for National Night Out, a nationwide initiative designed to promote positive police-community relationships. This event continues to expand and includes police, fire, ambulance, Northeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council (NEMLEC), and Essex County Sheriff’s Department vehicles on the Common, along with K-9 demonstrations. There will be even more organizations, social service agencies, and local businesses offering information and lots of free give-a-ways and free raffle drawings, as well. Kids’ activities include inflatables, games, and arts and crafts. There will also be free pizzas, drinks, and snacks donated by Salem businesses. Several new events have been added to this year’s schedule.
