This is Eddie K, Your host and photographer here at Eddie's Railfan Page!
A popular place for good old fashioned family amusement park fun that existed until recently in the greater Chicagoland area, was none other than the Kiddieland Amusement Park. Kiddieland was located at the northwest corner of First and North Avenues in Melrose Park Illinois, and was in business from 1928, until the park had closed for good in September of 2009.
Relive those happy Summertime memories of Kiddieland Amusement Park on Saturday, August 6th, 2011 at the Melrose Park Public Library, from 11:00 AM until 12:30 PM.
I will be hosting a musical photo slideshow with live home video snipets entitled "Kiddieland Memories".
If You have an old home movie of Kiddieland transfered to a DVD Disc, some old photos, or maybe even a prize or souvenier You won on the park's carnival midway...then please bring them down to the Melrose Park Public Library and share Your own "Kiddieland Memories" with the audience.
If You were a former employee of the Kiddieland Amusement Park, or just someone who enjoyed visiting the place with family or friends...Then You should really enjoy this nostalgic presentation. The Melrose Park Public Library is located at 801 Broadway Street, in northwest suburban Melrose Park Illinois.
This will be a fun event, admission is free, and We hope to see You there.
