Saying Goodbye to the 60th

With September beginning tomorrow, Halloween and all things pumpkin flavored are on the mind. But come September 5th, Disneyland’s Diamond Celebration for their 60th anniversary will finally end. Yes, the Diamond Celebration lasted well over a year, but it was such fun. With our visit to Portland coming up, we popped in to experience the 60th one last time, including the much beloved Paint the Night parade.

As the 60th anniversary comes to a close, Mickey, Minnie and all of their friends will return to their regular attire for a wee bit, before Halloween kicks into high gear in mid-September, and they don their Halloween costumes for the season. Also, the Disneyland Resort will say goodbye to the Disneyland Forever fireworks show, as well as the new electrical parade, Paint the Night. However fans of the original electrical parade, the Main Street Electrical parade will be happy to know that it is returning for a limited time next year.

As mentioned in my last post, not only is Disneyland’s anniversary celebration coming to an end September 5th, as is Knott’s Berry Farm’s Ghost Town anniversary. I previously mentioned that Patrick and I would be enroute to Portland during that time, however we are currently contemplating postponing when we leave. We originally planned to leave early to do things along the way, however, I recently came to acquire some new information about the Ghost Town Alive story that makes me want to be their for the last day. I plan to do a post culminating a collection of photos we have taken over the course of the last two weeks showcasing the magic that is Ghost Town Alive. Once again, I apologize for all of the theme park spam that has appeared lately on the blog and on my Instagram, but I’ve been trying to cram as much of both Disneyland and especially Knott’s before their wonderful celebrations come to an end. I’m sure there will be lots of vintage to be had during our visit to Portland next month, and hopefully I’ll showcase some unique and historical destinations during our trip.

  1. “…recently came to acquire some new information about the Ghost Town Alive story ..” – You say that so nonchalantly and leave it at that?? The suspense is killing me!

  2. How wonderful that you were able to visit one last time – and that you could share the experience with me. Love your cheerful red and blue outfit – and, oh my stars, that brooch is so incredible!
