I love the fact that you are trying to add things to the summer for people. Too bad the weather is being cranky, but like my Dad says, “It can blow like this for days!”...also, I think you need to do this next year. It’s a real plus for the parks.And you could sell popcorn and pop...keep it family friendly..maybe have a campfire before, where an interpretor tells a ghost story..or really any first person impression. If I were there I’d do a mini-concert of solo vocals, sans instruments!

And to think that people used to walk across the arch..eeeek! Would give me vertigo to be sure!

I remember talking personally with a Cottager on #5 tee at Wawashkamo Golf Club. He said that he attempted to ride across on his horse, but the horse wouldn’t go. Oh, thank God!
