    Disneyland fair

    Last night at Disneyland I was telling my husband that Disneyland once had a fair theme going on in the park. We're were waiting to board the train on main street where sometime during the late 80's they had a ferris wheel set up on the tracks. Does anybody remember that? Hubby thought I was making it up!

    I remember that! Despite the thematic issues that would tear it apart on modern-day discussion boards, it was one of my favorite promotions! It was just plain fun.

    The ferris wheel was set up just outside of MS Station, if I recall ... not on the tracks ... but I could be wrong. I distinctly remember watching the log runner's competition on the Rivers of America. In fact, I still have a giant polar bear plush with a State Fair button on it that I won! Good times!

    I'm pretty sure the ferris wheel was at the hub, not at the train station.

    Haha, I'd never heard of this before now!

    Pretty cool.

    I believe we are both correct. I just found this site: www.geocities.com/dlbackyard/istate.htm.
