share story

Fans of the annual Anaheim Halloween Parade and Fall Festival are gathering memories of the beloved community tradition for a documentary spanning 100 years of spooky fun.

A committee is busy collecting photos, film and memorabilia for everything related to the festival and parade. Anaheim community members are encouraged to review their old photos and “treasure chests” for memorabilia and photos to share. Anyone who contributes to the effort will be credited in the documentary’s credits.
