BOO! Hocus Pocus Cast Members In Salem!
With the ORIGINAL Hocus Pocus cast members in Salem, it’s hard to believe that the last time they were there was THIRTY years ago!
The original movie was so successful, stars Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy agreed to film a second movie. 29 years later, that came out last year. Reports say that a Hocus Pocus 3 is in the works.
If you haven’t been to Salem in during the October Halloween season, it can be fun, especially if you’re a fan of the original Hocus Pocus movie. Many of the scenes were filmed right there. My wife Heidi and I visited ALL of the Hocus Pocus filming locations, which you’ll see below.
What we DIDN’T know was this. Did you know that we had one of the best history tours in the world right in our own back yard? Trip Advisor awarded the History & Hauntings of Salem Guided Walking Tour, the #4 BEST TOUR in THE WORLD.
Hocus Pocus Cast Members
According to NBC 10 Omri Katz, who played Max Dennison, Thora Birch, who played Dani Dennison, Vinessa Shaw, who played Allison, and Jason Marsden, who played the voice of Binx the cat, were all in witch city the weekend of October 20.
What You Need To Know
If you visit Salem, here are some tips that will come in handy.
Parking is a challenge. There are public parking lots with meters. Also if you get lucky, you may find some street parking. But the earlier you get there, the better. If it’s a nice day and you arrive at 11am, good luck finding parking. You may want to Google, “breakfast in Salem” and start the day that way.
Wear comfortable shoes, and be ready to walk a lot! Also, bring snacks as restaurants get crowded fast! Allow for travel time, leaving home early to insure you make your tour time. Traffic into Salem gets tight especially during the Halloween Season.
So take a look at the Hocus Pocus cast members in Salem!
It’s me with the voice of the CAT version of Thackery Binx Jason Marsden!
