My Hometown: Anoka, Minnesota


The Baguss family

Population: 17,594

Claim to Fame: In 1920 Anoka threw the first known Halloween celebration in the U.S. Seventeen years later Congress officially recognized the city's self-proclaimed title of "Halloween Capital of the World."

Tony and I were born and raised in Maquoketa, Iowa. We started dating in high school, got married, and moved to Minnesota so I could attend art school there. After I graduated, we wanted to settle in a suburb of the Twin Cities—a real estate agent showed us Anoka and we were instantly hooked.
