'Days of Our Lives' Celebrates 50 Years With Lavish Party

All year, the iconic daytime drama Days of Our Lives has been preparing to celebrate its 50th anniversary with the return of beloved characters (Patch! Bo!) as well as launching a serial killer mystery. In anticipation of Days’ 50th anniversary special episode (Monday, Nov. 9; check local listings), dozens of castmembers past and present arrived at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on Nov. 7 to board the “U.S.S. Salem” for an evening of celebration.
