Silent digital video: The Octopus ride in action. Kiddieland Amusement Park. Melrose Park Illinois. June 2007. a video by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
This is Eddie K, Your host and photographer here at Eddie's Railfan Page.
On Saturday afternoon, May 14th, 2011 from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM, I will be hosting a railfan photo slideshow at the Franklin Park Public Library at 10311 West Grand Avenue in Franklin Park Illinois.
One of the main features that I will be showing, are My photos and videos of Chicago's Kiddieland Amusement Park, that existed in nearby Melrose Park Illionois from 1928 until the park had closed in 2009.
I am encouraging anyone who also may have sold old photos of Kiddieland, an old home movie of Kiddieland transfered to DVD, perhaps a game prize from the park's midway, or even some stories to share about Kiddieland to come out and enjoy the fun.
If You were a former Kiddieland employee, or someone who visited Kiddieland with Your family or friends when You were growing up...then We most definately want to hear from You.
This will be a fun event, and We hope to see You there.
