As Summer begins to fade into Fall, the people of Louisville start to anticipate the most exciting event of the season, The annual Caufield's Halloween Parade!!
Every year, the spooks come out in droves to be a part of this wild event & this year is no exception. There will ben even more creepy fun for time around.
The parade will begin at the corner of Baxter Ave. and Lexington Road near the Baxter Ave. Morgue and will travel south down Baxter to end at the corner of Bardstown Rd and Rosewood Ave. right in front of Mid City Mall.
The grand marshal for this year's parade is the one and only Butch Patrick. Patrick played Eddie Munster in the classic sitcom, The Munsters. You can meet him after the parade in The Baxter Avenue Morgue's main courtyard. He will also be appearing at the Morgue on Saturday October 12th.
Louisville, Kentucky's most unusual and very favorite costume shop! Holiday decorations, costumes, makeup, props, gags & much more.
From a 1920s novelty shop to a nationwide theatrical distributor. Keran S Caufield, Sr got into the novelty business in a peculiar way.
An Irish immigrant, Caufield opened a photography studio in Louisville, Ky., in 1920. Business was good and there were usually a few people waiting their turn in the studio's outer office. Caufield, using the $15 he had received in an accident settlement, bought some magic tricks. Practical jokes sell in the busy waiting room. Soon the novelty business outpaced the photography business and he put away his camera and opened Caufield's Novelties.
The store's magic tricks, practical jokes and toys sold well even through the Depression years. While novelties were not something people had to have, they were inexpensive and lighthearted and the local public continued to purchase them, despite the hard times.
Caufields continued to grow and expand its mix of Holiday Decorations and Seasonal merchandise with the continued dedication of the Caufield family and staff.
