I have heard about Anaheim’s annual Halloween event before, but I have never had the chance to go to this event. It somehow seems that I have always ended up being busy on this weekend the past few years in a row and this year as well. Since it is also always the weekend of the Loara Band Review and Field Tournament, I have missed that event the past few years in a row as well. Since I will not be able to see the festivities though, I would love to hear your memories of it.
What are you doing for Halloween? Are you going to be in a costume? We wish you a safe and fun Halloween!
