Come Back to Euclid Beach!

On Sunday September 28th, Euclid Beach Park Now and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, invited people to come back to Euclid Beach park for a free and fun day.

The day included tours of "Where things were at Euclid Beach Park" (Remember where the Dance Hall or Skating Ring were?) and lots of great memories.

One of the most popular attractions at this special event was the appearance of the one, the only, the original Laughing Sal.

Many people walked up to Laughing Sal and reminisced how Sal had made them laugh or had scared them to death!

The event also had an extra special attraction - the Cleveland Model T Club drove in a few dozen classic antique cars for the visitors to see. What a trip down Memory Lane!

Congratulations to Euclid Beach Park Now and the many volunteers who made this a terrific event. Right now, Euclid Beach Park looks like this

but with the dedication of these volunteers, maybe we will again see parts of the old familiar Euclid Beach park once again open for the season!
