Patriotic Sunset at Disneyland

This gorgeously saturated shot is from October 1962 and shows the daily Flag Lowering Ceremony that occurs in Town Square.

Zooming in, it appears that someone is standing in for Vesey Walker.

You can still view this touching display of patriotism at the park every day.

The Dapper Dans have made a lovely addition to the musical proceedings.

Wow!! What a beautiful early evening shot of Town Square.

The Flag Lowering Ceremony is one of those items on my to-do list of things I've never experienced at Disneyland. You'd think after 50 years of going to Disneyland, I would've watched it by now.
