This is Eddie K, Your host and photographer here at Eddie's Railfan Page with some very good news!
On Saturday, August 6th, 2011 from 11:00 AM until 12:30 PM...I will be hosting a photo slideshow presentation at the Melrose Park Illinois Public Library entitled "Kiddieland Memories"! The Library is located at 801 Broadway Street in Melrose Park Illinois.
For 81 years between 1928 until the park had closed for good in September of 2009, Chicago's Kiddieland Amusement Park in Melrose Park Illinois was the place to be for family summertime fun.
Don't be shy.
If You were a former employee of the Kiddieland Amusement Park, or a patron who enjoyed visiting the place with their family or friends....then You will enjoy this historic collection of photos and videos from the parks last years in operation at the northwest corner of North and First Avenues, in Melrose Park Illinois.
If You have an old home movie of Kiddieland transfered to DVD Disc, some old photos of the place, Perhaps a prize or two won on the park's midway, or best of all...some first hand accounts and memories of the place to share with everyone...then You won't want to miss this fun and nostalgic presentation.
This will be a fun event, and We hope to see You there.
