Did You Know...?
The city was to have a big Halloween celebration downtown. Everyone was encouraged to wear costumes, and 21 different merchants were planning stunts in front of their stores. They were scheduled about 10 minutes apart. The final stunt (at People's Furniture at 9:55) was for a high diver to jump from the top of the Clayton Building into three mattresses and springs. (Sapulpa Herald, October 31, 1921)
The town's Halloween party was a great success with huge crowds attending. The theme was Mardi Gras with everyone in costumes. The Herald stated "the proverbial lid was nowhere to be seen, and judging from the excess hilarity, was not on the city during festivities. Booths provided everything from candies to sweet cider and even other drinks were to be had in remote spots." (Sapulpa Herald, November 1, 1921)
