Anaheim Halloween Parade
Vintage Orange Wednesday, October 26 2016
Long before electric lights and synthesized hoe-down music blazed down Disneyland's Main Street, Anaheim was host to another legendary parade.
Since October of 1924, the locals have been celebrating the season with the Anaheim Halloween Parade. My guest this week is Stephanie George, Special Collections and Archives Librarian at Chapman University, who has been attending the parade faithfully since she was a little girl. This week she shares some of this history of this national Halloween obsession, as well as the origins of Anaheim's celebration.
This beloved tradition continues this weekend; on Saturday, October 29th. For more information, visit the Anaheim Halloween Parade website.
