Celebrating an anniversary, Arnolds Park Amusement Park

22 Sep

I kind of missed this particular event. Never a fan of amusement parks, the Arnolds Park Amusement Park though celebrated its 125th anniversary. It is home to one of the oldest wooden roller coaster rides in the U.S. I am not a lover of rides and so have never gotten excited about traveling to amusement parks. But it is something of a testament to the community spirit of Arnolds Park and those who love the history and tradition of this particular amusement park set in Siouxland’s northwest Iowa, nestled along the lakes in that area. Not everyone can celebrate a 125th birthday and still look good for their age.
