HoudiniMagic and Mystery are a part of Halloween Fun, just as Halloween Safety, Costumes and Party Ideas are.

Magic often brings to mind the Great Harry Houdini... Did you know that on this day in 1926 the magician Harry Houdini gave his very last performance at the Garrick Theater in Detroit,
Michigan?

Houdini was an illusionist and performer who got his start in vaudeville and became known for his daring escape acts. He got his big break in 1899 making a name for himself in the U.S. and in 1900 toured Europe with his act catching imaginations with his ability to escape handcuffs. His best known trick. the Chinese Water Torture Cell was first performed in 1913 and featured the performer suspended upside-down in a glass box full of water. His ability to hold his breath being the key to his escape. Houdini became famous worldwide and inspired many magicians and illusionists that came after him.
