Throwback Thursday Oct-27-2016

Mancunians sure love dressing up. So much so, on Saturday we hosted our 5th Annual Zombie Walk throughout downtown (see photos from J & L Art and Photography here)! The Manchester Historic Association’s archives has two great shots of Halloween from Manchester’s past.

Halloween seems like it was soo much creepier in the 1950s. Look at those masks! I remember growing up we had a trunk full of old costumes for dressing up and in it were two masks from the early 60s… JFK and Nixon. These weren’t your realistic masks of today, but creepy ones that my sisters and I would throw on to scare the other neighborhood kids. Good times. What is your go-to mask for scaring others!? Come on… I know you have one!

Need plans for Halloween? Join the Millyard Museum and Manchester Young Professionals for their Night at the Museum–a Halloween Party for adults with music, food, and a cash bar! More information here!
