Organ Rally at Coney Island Day 11 August 2013
By Bob Yorburg

Hi Everyone,  We are planning a monkey organ rally this summer which
will be hosted by Deno's Wonder Wheel Park in Coney Island.  The
festival will be held in conjunction with the Coney Island History Day.

This year this event is Saturday, August 10th, rain date Sunday August
11th.  This day will include rides, games, food, live entertainment
including shows, music, magic and of course street organs, grind
organs, monkey organs, crank organs and the like!

It is especially important to show support this year because Coney
Island was hit hard by storm Sandy.  This year will be a grand
reawakening of the area as well as a great way to heighten the
awareness of Coney Island and it's history to the general public.

People looking to bring instruments should contact Bob Yorburg so
that they can be placed and coordinated with the schedule for the day.
Below are some useful links that explain what History Day is and more
about Deno's Wonder Wheel Park.

Coney Island History Day will have many of the same activities as last
year, including live music, entertainment, history lectures/demos and
exhibition.  The event, which is free to the public, will be at the
same time: 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.  Check this link on the web site for details
of last year's (2012) History Day:

By the way, if people are traveling from long distances, we will try
to set up other activities for the weekend including visiting private
collections, entertainment, food options and the like.
