Fall Fantasy Parade 2007

News Release

August 14, 2007

West Mifflin, PA — Kennywood is pleased to present the 58th annual Fall Fantasy Parade. This year’s parade — Kenny’s Krazy Kritters on Parade — gets underway Tuesday, August 14, and runs every evening at 8 PM thru Sunday, August 26, plus Friday and Saturday, August 31 and September 1.*

Along with up to ten bands performing every night — that’s almost 150 high school and college bands! — Kenny Kangaroo invited some of his all-time favorite “Kritters” to be models for the 2007 floats. They include Bunny-O-Saures Rex, Giraffe on a Raft, Chocolate Moose, and the One Eyed Purple People Eater! Kenny and his buddy Garfield have their own floats, and keeping with a long-time tradition, Santa Claus will bring each parade to a close — this year in his own airplane!

Kennywood Team Members don costumes to bring the floats and walking characters to “life”. Kennywood’s Human Resource Director Joe Barron states, “Our Team Members love to be in the parade. It’s fun to see their individual personalities appear through the characters they portray!” This year’s walking characters include a variety of super heroes and other familiar friends.

Fall Fantasy dates back to 1950, when “Alice in Wonderland on Parade” began this end-of-season tradition. The six night festival made use of floats from Riverview Park in Chicago, Illinois, as well as local marching bands. After two years of transporting floats from Chicago to West Mifflin, Kennywood decided to produce its own floats. Today’s master float crafter, Mary Ann Spanagel of Pittsburgh, began as a teenage assistant to artist Frank Ross (her art teacher) in 1961. She took over the reigns in 1979 and has shared her talent with Kennywood Fall Fantasy audiences ever since.

*Note: Kennywood is closed Monday, August 27 through Thursday, August 30. The park opens at 5 PM on Friday, August 31, and is open all day Saturday through Labor Day, September 2, plus two bonus weekends: Saturdays and Sundays, September 8, 9, 15 and 16

The 75th annual Croatian Day is Saturday, September 1.
