This is Eddie K, Your host and photographer here at Eddie's Railfan Page.
For 81 years from 1928 until the park had closed for good in September of 2009, Chicago's Kiddieland Amusement Park delighted many visiting families and patrons, at the northwest corner of North and First Avenues, in nearby Melrose Park Illinois.
On Saturday, May 14th, 2011 from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM, I will be hosting a photo slideshow in the community room at the Franklin Park Public Library entitled "Kiddieland Memories!"
The Library is located at 10311 West Grand Avenue in northwest suburban Franklin Park Illinois.
If You have an old home movie of Kiddieland transfered to a DVD disc, some photos, or even a happy memory or two to share...then You are bound to enjoy this nostalgic and local historic presentation.
If You were a former Kiddieland employee, or just someone who enjoyed visiting Kiddieland with Your family or friends, then please feel free to come out and share the fun.
I will be showing My photos and videos of Kiddieland at the presentation for all to enjoy.
This will be a fun event, and We hpe to see You there.
