Every Saturday before Halloween since 1924 Anaheim has hosted a Halloween parade, however, like with many things, COVID has thrown a wrench in tradition. Last year they opted for a drive-thru experience, or a reverse parade (as I called it) where the parade floats were stationary and we drove by them. This year they tried something a little different, a scavenger hunt around Anaheim where locals were given clues to various Anaheim landmarks where different floats were parked, and were given the next clue, candy, and in some cases there were even a few crafts for the kiddos.
The event provided a nice late afternoon walk around town, and honestly, I was just happy that the tradition could continue even in the altered format. I do hope that by next year COVID is more or less a thing of the past and the Anaheim Fall Festival and Halloween Parade can continue in its regular format.

This is just the coolest idea! I may honestly have gasped aloud over that ultra-awesome vintage style scavenger hunt card.
Love your local + Halloween themed outfit, too. I know I’ve said i many times before, but, truly no one tops you well it comes to themed ensembles, my friend.
Hope you have a cozy, wonderful first weekend of November.

PS: Pre-pandemic, our wee town held a small Halloween night fireworks show, but that’s about the extent of community-centered traditions around these parts.
