I never even knew this existed. Playland, a “permanent” amusement park installation opened 5/11/1947 on West Central. It was relocated to the the fairgrounds (in the area the flea market was later hosted) in 1954. This photo is from 1955.

The game room was a retired C-97 Stratofreighter fuselage. 

 Here are other photos I was able to track down.

Evidently the land it sat on was sold 5/5/1968.

1980 Yamaha YZ

Esthetically the 1978 was the panicle. I used to go to see every night dreaming of owning a 1979 YZ 80. BTW that’s not my mom or my motorcycle.
