2014 Outdoor Mechanical Music Calendar
Last weekend our Carousel Organ Association of America (COAA) Rally
Coordinator announced that we now have pretty firm plans in place for
six rallies. Most 2013 activity was at festivals, but carousels
feature heavily for 2014. As I wrote them down, they are
Lake Winnie Amusement Park, Chattanooga, TN area, Memorial Day Weekend
Knoebels Amusement Park, Central PA, probably 14-15 June
A Carousel 100th Anniversary Celebration, Hartford, CT, probably
11-12 July (Someone said it was a PTC, but it is almost certainly
Bushnell Park's Stein & Goldstein Carousel)
Olcott Beach Park, Buffalo, NY area, 27-28 July
PTC Carousel #32 Rededication, St. Paul, MN, date not set
Illinois Railway Museum, Union, IL, Labor Day weekend
We hope to add two more, and we will always consider additional
invitations. COAA rallies are open to non-members of COAA.
Our President said he is twisting (new) arms to set up a Mid-Winter
Gathering in Florida. He thinks he has the strength to succeed.
It would be helpful to hear what others are planning.
