Welcome to Grad Nite ’67! Here is a “Complimentary / Admit One Sponsor” ticket for June 16, 1967. That had to be a little odd to be at Grad Nite and not be a Grad or a Chaperon.
Speaking of Chaperon’s, here is an “Official Chaperon” sticker. I would make a terrible Chaperon, by 2am I would just be looking for a place to lay down & sleep…. "Wake me up when its over".
Here is the great program from Grad Nite ’67. The two ladies on the left look like the just escaped from Sergio Mendez & Brazil ’66. Everyone else looks so happy and inviting that I’m going to go ahead and use that Sponsor ticket!
This program was printed with a different section on this page for each of the days, I have two versions; June 14th and June 16th, 1967.
This part talks about “new advances in science and technology” makes you think there might be some New Tomorrowland stuff coming up in this program, not so.
Great entertainment lineup; Dobie Gray (A few years before “Drift Away”), “The Aggregation” now that’s a cool name, “Aunt Dina’s Quilting Party” at the Mine Train and MORE!!!!
I scanned it with Bill Elliott twice; I have no idea why…. The “Regents”, “Disneyland Humdinger”, the “Individuals” and still MORE!!! They really racked up the entertainment, especially when you consider there are no acts in Tomorrowland *which was christened the “New” Tomorrowland on July 2, 1967. (*From Davelandweb).
For Grad Nites in 1964 & 1965 new Mustangs were given away, 1966 saw GTO’s being given away, now for 1967 it’s the “Car of the Year” the Mercury Cougar. KFWB is still around; its News 980 now (it was News 98 until a few years ago). Do they still broadcast “Grad Nites” from Disneyland on any station?
I think the white space on the right side might be for autographs? Or they just didn’t have the right sized picture.
Is really is, isn’t it?
WOW, that was a fast and fun Grad Nite Week!. Of course, I do have more, but we’ll take a little break from it this weekend, be sure to come back on Bonus Sunday for the Complete Tencennial Guide. Grads don't fear; Next week we’ll visit Grad Nite in the 80’s a couple of times.
