The Haunted Bridge, a Pacifica Ghost Story for Halloween
Just in time for Halloween, storytellers Adrienne Doherty and Adrian Smith reintroduce their story about a young girl who solves a mystery and brings a little sunshine back into the foggy world of Pacifica.
It’s time again for Pacifica artists and storytellers Adrian Smith and Adrienne Doherty’s annual Halloween story.
“The Haunted Bridge” tells the story of a young girl who reasons with a grumpy ghost to stop bursting balloons and making it always foggy. The story features the Ocean Shore Railroad, which many years ago ran between San Francisco and Santa Cruz.
Smith wrote and narrated the video. The illustrations are by Doherty and original music is performed by Trashcan Petunia.
Last year’s Halloween story, "Who Killed Cock Robin, A Cautionary Tale for Halloween" is a twisted retelling of the traditional nursery rhyme “Who Killed Cock Robin.”
Running about three minutes long, “Who Killed Cock Robin” can be viewed here.
Doherty and Smith are known for telling stories that are set in their own community and taking something that is very familiar and then turning it upside down and seek out its mysteries and eccentricities.
