"At the beach, at the beach, at Pontchartrain Beach" the jingle extolled, "you'll have fun, you'll have fun every day of the week."
Closed after the summer season in 1988, this amusement park holds fond memories for New Orleanians and and visitors alike. All at once were the beautiful colored lights, the sweet/salty/bitter mixed aroma of popcorn, cotton candy and beer; the cool chill from the lake breeze; the coarseness of the rope which rang the little tinkling bell on the kiddie boats; the organ and thumps of the merry-go-round; the clunk of the wooden milk bottles hitting the floor from the carnival game; the rattle and forthcoming whoosh of the Zephyr; the tastes of watermelon and soft-ice-cream cones, not to mention the giddiness from old Bubble Bounce, the terror of the Wild Maus; and the many-faceted delight of flying in the Glider with one's extra-special person. Memories you can celebrate with this decorative ornament.
This ornament measures 5 X 4 5/8 on 18 count Zweigart canvas ready for stitching.
