Zac Efron Looks Happy & Healthy During Hairspray Reunion At A Haunted Hayride!

zac efron healthy happy halloween hangout

So much goodness going on right here!

We're beyond happy to see that Zac Efron seems to be keeping it healthy after his stints in rehab, but we're even happier to see that he's surrounding himself with good people just as he should.

After a bumpy road that very few knew about, Zefron is back in the swing of things.

And it looks like he swung right over to the Griffith Park Haunted Hayride along with some friends and former Hairspray coworkers!

Not only did Julianne and Derek Hough join in on the spooktacular festivities, but Zac's former Hairspray director, Adam Shankman, and his costar, Brittany Snow, were witching it up with their sober buddy!

We just hope all these fancy-footed friends managed to sneak in a dance off in between the ghosts and goblins!
