Tencennial: Town Square
It’s the last day of the Tencennial, and the focus is Town Square. I love Town Square; it’s such a great entrance into the park. The characters are always there to welcome you, the band is often playing there, and it’s your first glimpse of the Main Street architecture that takes you back into the past. It’s also one of the saddest places when you are leaving; often I think, “Did I miss something today; should I go back?” Shot one shows the currently under-utilized area that was once the Hills Brothers Coffee House & Garden; with the lack of decent coffee at the park, you’d think this area could be put into use again for a similar concept. Shot 2 makes me yearn for the return of Ol’ Abe; I’m pretty much over Steve Martin’s smug hosting of the movie being shown there.
Be sure to catch the beehive on the left, and my favorite Omnibus dead center.
And finally, City Hall, where everyone must go on their birthday to get a birthday phone call! I have included another closeup of the Tencennial lamp post signage as well as one of a tour in progress.
Hope you all enjoyed the Tencennial Tour, and thanks to CoxPilot for explaining our mysterious Tiki-Dressed Maiden yesterday.
