Hi to all of our supporters. We were at Kings Island Winterfest on selected nights from November 26 to December 31, 2021. We did the first two years of Kings Island Winterfest. If you haven’t already read any of our blogs, here is a little background history about Kings Island Winterfest and Kings Island.
Kings Island was conceived as early as 1964 when Coney Island, a popular amusement park 10 miles east of downtown Cincinnati on the banks of the Ohio River, suffered from a major flood that submerged the area in over 14 feet (4.3 m) of water. Although occasional flooding was common at the successful park, the flood in 1964 was the fourth highest on record and caused considerable damage. Faced with already-limited space for expansion and parking, the event triggered discussions within the organization about relocating the park. In July 1969, Taft Broadcasting Company purchased Coney Island for $6.5 million and soon after purchased 1,600 acres (650 ha) in Warren County, Ohio, for $3.2 million. Kings Island still owned 773 acres (313 ha) of that purchase as of 2005. Kings Island Winterfest operates from late-November through December and debuted in 1982. Kings Island Winterfest ran for ten years originally. It was rebooted in 2005 and lasted a year. After a 12 year hiatus, Kings Island Winterfest returned in 2017.
We’re still searching for a 15 passenger van to put everything in it. We started a Ko-fi Page! Ko-fi helps creators get support from fans of our work. Please support or follow our ko-fi page! . We set up a goal of $5000 to buy a van. It will be needed soon since my car died on my way home from a show.
Setup for the Kings Island Winterfest for us was on Wednesday before Thanksgiving. We arrived at the park at 3 pm. We completed 80% of the setup. We finished the setup on Black Friday afternoon. It was a very busy day on Friday. It always has a good mix of vendors featuring some great talent at the Kings Island Winterfest. Kings Island Winterfest continued the trend of being a good show for us that was preceded by a very strong October.
