During our first visit to Conneaut Lake Park, I had the pleasure of interviewing a few of the folks who run the pony track. The park had just re-opened after being closed for two years, and the ponies were back and ready to resume their duties as if nothing had happened. The dedication and verve of folks like Don Weyel are remarkable and major reasons I wrote this book. Please take some time today to read this article and support YOUR local vintage amusement park!! Heck - take a road trip down to Conneaut Lake Park and experience the magic yourself!
