Salem’s Black Hat Society (SBHS) was founded in October 2016 when Brian Sims first started street performing for Haunted Happenings in Salem, MA as Borah Brewington Snaggletooth XIII. SBHS brings perpetually fun, positive, energy filled performances creating smiles, joy, happiness, good will AND a little magic to Salem, with proceeds from tips being donated to local children's charities.

As a character witch, BORAH! roams the streets of Salem welcoming, entertaining and engaging with people and helping educate visitors about Salem’s rich history. SBHS also promotes local events, venues and the business community.

You may catch BORAH! singing Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary, Christmas songs and national and international anthems. Borah is always ready to snap pictures with guests or break out into a crazy song and dance.  
BORAH! can also be found officiating weddings, vow renewals and baby gender reveals around Salem.

SBHS has frequent and unique giveaways, contests and drawings on their FacebookInstagramTwitter and TikTok accounts. SBHS also can be seen live streaming through the Salem's Black Hat Society and Haunted Happenings Magazine Facebook pages. SBHS also has a YouTube channel where you can find more of their fun videos.
