NO ENTRY AGAIN UNTIL OCTOBER 10th.
Editor's Note: How funny that Buffalo Bill got top billing in the list of the days' events when Allen's farmhand/ friend Gail got married as well and spent his first night of wedded bliss at their house with them. I hope Gail didn't catch the show too--priorities and all.
I miss the bygone era of amusement parks on lake fronts. Onondaga lake had one about this era as well. Imagine everyone dressed up to be seen. No shorts, tank tops or sandals but long sleeves, skirts and trousers in 90 degree heat. Too many larger attractions these days and airplanes make the big world smaller but still shout out to Midway!
