Lightning Bug Ride

The lightning bug,
The lightning bug,
I'll bet you didn't know
How much the fairies love him,
'Cause he's their radio.
The lightning bug,
The lightning bug,
The fairies' radio.

While doing research on Seabreeze Park, my fifth of six upcoming parks on the Roadtrip, I came upon this great photo of the Lightning Bug ride, circa 1950. The park was booming with post-WWII boomers, enjoying their local park.

I don't believe the ride exists anymore. But the fun lives on in this great vintage photo.
