Legend City Opening Day: 50 Years Ago

Found video of that magical day! June 29, 1963. The start of so many memories. During a recent 50th Anniversary celebration I had the opportunity to meet the brains behind it, Louis Crandall and the legs, Printy. She was one of the original cancan dancers in The Coca-Cola Golden Palace Saloon (later called the Red Garter.)
Also, had the opportunity to meet another performer, Vonda Kay Van Dyke, Miss America 1965, who worked at Legend City as a ventriloquist, that was also her talent in the famous beauty pageant. Celebrating and watching the found video makes me wish I could go there and cool off. Here's to Legend City and hoping you cancan keeping cool.
