Brighter and brighter is the outlook
for a record attendance at the Big Memorial Celebration at Cranberry
Lake, May 29th, 30th and 31st. The people all over the county are
making arrangements to swell the crowds at this old-time popular recreation
park, and well they may, for here will be found everything usually
found at any pleasure resort outside of Coney Island. Arrangements
have been made to place on the grounds either a Flying Machine or
Ferris Wheel in addition to the many other attractions. Some concessions
are still for sale, such as lunch frankfurters and hamburgers, fruit,
nuts and popcorn and candy. Also the legitimate concessions which
are not listed can be placed by communicating with the Secretary.
