April 24 -The History of Palisades Amusement Park – A Webinar
Saturday, April 24 at 11 am
Advance registration required
Online – The popular and informative lecture is a comprehensive history of the Park beginning with its inception in the late 1800s, detailing its history of the world’s largest outdoor salt water pool, the musical groups, the rides, the pageants and the disasters, until its ultimate demise in 1971. Throughout the show, the history of the park will come alive through the use of audio and video clips, music and over one hundred rare photographs collected by the Palisades Amusement Park Historical Society. Please note: This program will NOT be recorded.
Hosted by Vince Gargiulo: For over 25 years, Vince has been speaking throughout New Jersey, detailing the history of the famed New Jersey fun center. Vince is the author of the book Palisades Amusement Park: A Century of Fond Memories, and Executive Producer of the NY/Thirteen PBS documentary of the same name.
*Note: The Palisades Park exhibit and events have been very popular and unfortunately, our February 20 and February 25 Palisades Park programs reached capacity very quickly. Register soon!
Vince also intends to present this lecture, and others, again in the future. His website is http://www.palisadespark.com/lectures.html.
