Celebration Summer at Disneyland - August 17-23, 1975

Its Disneyland’s Celebration Summer - 1975. This fun gate flyer is for August 17 thru 23, 1975. The drawing on the left is so hip – I’m in there somewhere!






Bo Donaldson & the Heywoods (who?) – Sunshine Balloon is rocking the Tomorrowland Terrace. And America on Parade is just a few months old here. Did you know that Don Dorsey created the unique new musical sound for this parade? He was also the guiding force behind the computerized synchronization of the Main Street Electrical Parade when it returned in 1977. Don's DECS sync system is now the Disney “global” standard for parades (link).






At first I could not tell is this flyer was from 1975 or 1976 (there is no year indicated). However, this rarely seen logo confirms it’s from 1975.






Endless amounts of entertainment all for the price of admission!

Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods! I am almost positive they sang "Billy Don't Be a Hero". Remember that song??

C'mon Tim, you must remember 'Billy Don't Be A Hero'- A train wreck of a song if ever there was one!

If you hear it, you'll remember.
