Retro Benched RFH Halloween Paraders

Well, it’s about that time for Halloween parades. In fact, Fair Haven’s is on Sunday. And, back in the day, RFH had its own high school Halloween parade.

Some bunny — or a few bunnies and other assorted suspicious characters — got dressed for the occasion, paraded themselves around campus and benched themselves for a spell, too.

The Halloween spirit is in the air. And these senior gaggle of girls embodied it. From controversial, yet timely and popular at the time, Playboy bunny costumes, to Raggedy Ann, a ghost, a cat, a gypsy and whatever else, they were parading and pleased with their choices.

So, in honor of all things ghoulish or just plain prime for this time of year, the Retro Pic of the (George) Day offers a glimpse back at the RFH festivities.

It was always all in fun, no matter the costume, for RFH Halloweens. No parents even flinched over the Playboy bunny costumes. What’s taboo now? Most popular? What were you for Halloween back in those RFH days?

Thanks, once again, to George Day for this fabulous look back at RFH history!
