This brought back many memories for me – I was 1 (and probably celebrated my birthday there) when they had the first Corn Carnival and have attended many of them over the years. Grandpa lived 1 block to the south of the park and we would wait at his house for them to blow the whistle to let us know that the corn was ready. I used to take Darcy, Bonnie, and MaryKay out for a day when they were younger and my aunts still lived in the house.
How did you happen to be there? Did you tour the Ackerlund Museum? A lot of my family history is there.
