The Yard held the JFK Ghoulish Halloween Ball Saturday night with a great night to celebrate with a costume party in Salem.

Around 8 p.m., JFK, a local classic rock band, kicked off the party. Joel Kinney, Arnold Williams, Michael Lowery, and Leland Hallahan played hits from the 70s-90s.

Costumed guests sat at the rustic tables, handmade by the owner, Shannon Williams’ father. 

Andie and Wayne Camardese dressed as Harley Quinn and the Joker.  Dakota Zimmer and Chris Mercier dined together as Tiny Tim and Ebenezer Scrooge.  Nichole and Levi Liebelt showed up as creepy clowns.

The Yard Food Park is located at 4106 State St. and has 18 food carts, indoor and outdoor seating, and a children’s play area.
