From 1977: 'Star Wars' costumes in high demand
'Star Wars' characters have been popular Halloween costumes for decades -- all the way back to 1977, when the original film was released. Here's WJBK's Otis Buchanan with the story from a Detroit costume shop on October 22, 1977.
Haunted houses are a Halloween tradition, and whether you’re scared sleepless in Seattle, lost in the quagmire of the DC bureaucracy, or keeping things weird down in Austin, there’s something spooky near you.
Of course, not everyone is into haunted houses. On the milder side, there’s spooky putt-putt golf in Milwaukee, and it’s hard to go wrong with a pup parade, especially in a busy place like New York City.
Here’s a look at some of the top haunted (and not-so-haunted) attractions across the U.S. in 2023, as experienced first-hand by our brave FOX Television Stations reporters.
