Beech Bend holiday festival

Wednesday, October 17, 2007 11:48 PM
Just caught this. Beech Bend is inaugurating a special holiday event, running from Thanksgiving until January 5:

It features two miles of Christmas light displays, Santa's haywagon, holiday meals, and rides, including Kentucky Rumbler.

Looks like I might have to make a holiday excursion to Bowling Green!

That's kind of what I was picturing. :)

Average temperature in December for Bowling Green is in the low 40s. Snow is a possibility but not likely.

Looks like my coaster season hasn't ended yet!

Here is another example of why I don't understand Holiday World and not staying open until the end of October with a Halloween event.

Halloween has proven to be a great time for parks to pull in guests and generate more revenue.

I have heard the reasons here already of why they don't do it so spare yourselves with that. :)

How about this one, then, Chitown...
Being a privately help company, they are happy with their annual revenue and current rate of growth and don't feel the need to generate more business by doing something new?

Could this be the beginning of Beech Bend's KWinter KFunfest, with a silent K?

rollergator's avatar ^^^Holiday World does seem like a perfect fit for a Halloween event to me...

I sure hope that this pays off for Beech Bend, but I am left wondering how many people are thinking about amusement parks when there's snow on the ground....if they market it (heavily) more as a Christmas event, it might do well.
