Eddie K hosting "Kiddieland Memories" at the Melrose Park Public Library. Melrose Park Illinois USA. Saturday, August 6th, 2011.

Hello everyone!

This is Eddie K, Your host and photographer here at Eddie's Railfan Page.

Man! What a fun and exciting weekend!

This past Saturday, I had the honor and privlidge of being asked to host a musical photo slideshow presentation I had put together entitled "Kiddieland memories", at the Melrose Park public Library.

A total of 16 people including My Wife, Brother in Law and Mother in Law were in attendance in the upstairs meeting room.

Chicago's Kiddieland Amusement Park, was located at the northwest corner of First and North Avenues in Melrose Park Illinois, and operated there from 1928 until the park had closed for good in 2009. Many of the people in attendance at the library, were life long fans of the Kiddieland amusement Park, and had many wonderful and happy memories to share of growing up with Kiddieland many years ago.

Special guests in attendance included Frank Pope and His Son Frank Jr from the Melrose Park Historical Society, as well as Mike Chrisci from the Niles Historical Society.

It was a fun event, and there are some standing offers to do other presentation appearances inthe area in possible upcoming months.

Thanks everyone!
Kiddieland Memories was a big hit!

Eddie K.
