Are you ready for some more Knott’s? I sure am! From the “Would a – Could a” department, these first two images are from April’s Knott’s Preserved event. This general admission ticket could have been used in place of the Ticketron style tickets actually used (link).
This would have been the lanyard from the Grand Avenue Tour, similar to the Ghost Town Tour (link), however that tour ended up not having any lanyards at all. If you’re wondering why these scans are so clear, it's because they're not scans, they're the originals! - “Thanks Chris!” and “Awesome Book”!
Following up on Magazine Monday’s Ice Capades post, the farm didn’t want miss out on the ice fun either so they formed the Knott’s Ice Spectacular – Here's the 1980 Edition, its fifth year!
They added an ice floor on the stage of the Good Time Theater? I bet that didn’t come cheap.
Presented by Knott’s Berry Farm and Pepsi-Cola. That Tommy Walker guy sounds familiar?
Oh, that Tommy Walker “Disney Director of Entertainment ‘Tommy’ Walker left USC and became the Magic Kingdom's first director of entertainment and customer relations. Disney used to tease Walker, "Everything you do is fireworks, balloons, pigeons and flags." Certainly these were four key elements in the extravaganzas Walker was known for. Walker's father, Vesey (honored as a Disney Legend in 2005), formed the original Disneyland Band.” (Wiki-link)
1980, need I say more?.
The show looks better in text than in these photos. I wonder what it was like in person.
Al-righty-then, this is where I sneak out of the theater, just a few steps away is Knott’s Bear-y Tales and I’ve got a handful of “B” tickets! (I really do have a handful of "B" tickets)
There are plenty more photos in this program, but you can get the basic idea from the back cover. I need to go dust off my Solid Gold VHS tapes - Dionne and Andy, here I come!
