October 30, 2011 Hangtown Halloween Ball, Placerville, California
Moonalice poster by David Singer
According to Moonalice legend, today’s poster by David Singer depicts the very first Hangtown Halloween festival back in the 1849. The original Hangtown was supposed to be a harvest festival, but what with the Gold Rush and all, almost everyone had forgotten to plant their crops. Fortunately, the two characters in the foreground of this poster – Dry Diggings Moonalice and his new bride El Dorado — were the last people in town who understood that the only gold worth having at a party is the kind you can smoke.
