Souvenir Friday on a Saturday- Grad Nite 1963

Delayed due to a business trip to Utah, I now present souvenir Friday on a Saturday. This is the souvenir from one of the first Grad Nites held at Disneyland. Basically a way for the park to make more money and to celebrate graduation from High School. In the 1960s most adults graduated from High School and then went into the work force, so High School graduation was a high point. And what better way to celebrate than spend a night at Disneyland with the park just to yourself and several thousand other 18 and 19 year olds. The bands playing were quite a mix. So relive your youth (or pretend you are from the 1960s) and imagine yourself at Disneyland for Grad Nite.

If only I had a time machine! With that entertainment line-up, I would like to attend that evening over and over again.

Talk about eclectic! What a blast that would have been.

Wow, that's a lot of entertainment! Disneyland was quite a different place back then.
