Okay, here's my favorite Orange-County-history-related Halloween costume so far this year. This is Jody Daily at yesterday's Anaheim Halloween Festival dressed as the former Anaheim Chamber of Commerce spokescritter, "Andy Anaheim." This character was created for Anaheim by Walt Disney Studios in 1954, as the opening of Disneyland drew near. The image below is a 1955 newspaper ad for the Festival featuring Andy dressed in his own costume: Davey Crockett!Learn more about Andy Anaheim on Kevin Kidney's always delightful Miehana blog.
Feel free to email me photos of your own Orange-County-history-related Halloween costumes so I can share them here. I will post the best 20 or 30 received.
