The days are inching closer to that yearly fright night, when spirits are believed to roam free to spook and play pranks on the living. But, we all know Halloween isn’t just about the spooks and scares, but also for fun parties where the young and the young at heart dress up in quirky costumes.

Halloween parties have been around for many decades, and it’s always a treat to get a glimpse of how people back then dressed up and partied the fright night away. So, I put my super sleuthing skills to use and scoured Flickr for interesting vintage photos of Halloween parties, going as far back as the early 1900s. Take a look at what I found!

While I have also seen some nice color photographs, I think monochrome suits the spooky occasion best. Do you agree or not? Also, if you happen to find some photos of your Halloween parties from the yester-decades, why don’t you share them with us with a comment below?
