2009: Holiday World
The next step of our Summer 2009 vacation was to visit Holiday World in Southern Indiana. While this park is older it is truly a hidden gem – besides having several number 1 rated roller coasters and water rides, they have free parking, free suntan lotion, and free unlimited soda. We love this park and have been there several times.
On the first day we arrived at the park early, which if you have been following me for a while, you know is a strategy of mine when visiting events and attractions. We saw Pat Koch, the matriarch of the owner family, sweeping up trash outside the gates to the park! She let us take a picture with her – we felt like we had just met Walt Disney!
The park is divided into “Holiday zones” with each area themed as a unique holiday. Holiday world is located in Santa Claus, Indiana, so naturally the original theme of the park is Christmas! – which is refreshing in the heat of Indiana summers.
These two pages showcases the themes of Christmas and Thanksgiving. I used an ornate corner cutter to corner cut the pictures and the picture borders. Since the two pages look so different in color scheme I felt that this was important to bring the two pages together.
