Halloween Haunt in the Beginning

First up I'm posting a page from the Winter 1973 Knotty Post showing some pictures from the first Halloween Haunt. See more from the first Halloween Haunt at this OC History Roundup post.

The next image is from the Fall 1974 Knotty Post with pictures from the second Halloween Haunt.

The next three images are of the Show Guide/Map for the third Halloween Haunt in 1975. This was the first year that Wolfman Jack would headline and host the Halloween Haunt.

A lot of the special features for the event were kind of sideshow type attractions like the Invisible Man, Spider Woman, Dracula's Hands, Headless Woman and the Severed Head. Some of these were illusions created with mirrors.

Tomorrow I'll be posting some items from the fourth and fifth Halloween Haunt. Including some great publicity shots of Wolfman Jack.
