Saludos Amigos 1963
Over the years, Disneyland has tried various events and special days to increase attendance. Some have worked wonderfully and others have not been as successful. Given the demographics of Southern California, Mexican Festivals have always done well. This publicity photo shows an early incarnation with nice lamppost plaques reading Saludos Amigos. The back of the photograph has a 1963 date written on the back, maybe Jason can track down the exact date. I like the dueling Mariachis as well as the crowd in the background with lots of sunglasses.
