Travel Back Thursday: Halloween In The 1950s

Our friends at AOL Travel published an article today, covering the Best Halloween Neighborhoods in America. These communities and neighborhoods have some long-standing traditions that they honor in order to keep things festive — and perhaps a bit spooky. This 1952 throwback shows a young family, preparing to go out that evening in their Central City, Colorado neighborhood.

What did your community do for Halloween when you were young?
