I'm must admit I know virtually nothing about this major annual event at Knoebels. Where can I learn more?

go to the parks website since it is a park run event...
see below for better link... I was too lazy to go get the better link ;) *** Edited 10/6/2005 7:01:11 PM UTC by dragonoffrost***
Watch the tram car please....

It is at the bottom of the
the Events page.

Wow...info on the park's website? Who'da thunk? ;)
PS - yes, that was sarcasm. Why don't people automatically look there

^Because they have us, Moosh. ;-)

Well, I can kind of understand in this case since it is organized by the park and not a coaster club.
Can't wait till Saturday!

Kozmo puts it together every year. He is always looking for mindless minions to join his mysterious celebration of the occult.

At least he gets points for spelling Knoebels correctly.

Sorry guys -- I actually did look at the events page, but didn't get to the bottom. I saw "Covered Bridge Festival" and closed the page.
If your parents ever dragged you on a multi-day covered bridge tour of Quebec, you would understand. I'm 31 and still scarred... *** Edited 10/6/2005 9:05:32 PM UTC by greatwhitenorth***

LOL gwn. I still shudder when my mom says
"Let's go to the mall, I only want to visit one store"
...and I'm 40! ;)

the covered bridge festial at Knoebels is MUCH WORSE than that.
Instead of going all over Quebec in search of covered bridges, there are two of them right there on site at Knoebel's. So to celebrate that, they set up hundreds of tents and tables full of kitchy arts and crafts stuff. I'm talking expensive "Country style" woodcrafts and artwork being looked over by thousands of ooohing and aaaahing people dragging their toy poodles dressed in evening-wear. No, not the people; they're wearing ill-fitting jogging suits. It's the toy poodles who are dressed in evening wear.
It's about as far removed from the Phall Phun Phest crowd as you can possibly imagine. :)

Who will be staying clear of that part of Knoebel's on Saturday...

The real question here is, how hard is PPP going to be for me to do on crutches?? :(
I've been getting better so hopefully I'll be able to limp around but I absolutely cannot miss the good times at this event..

Knoebels is built on flat land, but there is a bit of walking to be done between Twister and Phoenix. I've never used crutches but I would imagine it wouldn't be too terribly difficult.

Forty lashes for Ride Man with a crocheted potholder and a grapevine wreath tastefully decorated with silk wildflowers and a large fuschia bow!

Hey I like covered bridges. I often take detours on trips to check them out.
I'm scarred in other ways - like that football game I was dragged two about 8 years ago *shudder*.

Now there is a costume idea!

Just a reminder to everyone......don't just bring some warm clothes or costumes, bring the ponchos!
There's a 96% chance of rain in Elysburg on Saturday. Not that I mind, but hopefully the weather reports are wrong as they sometimes are. ;-)
For those of you going to Kennywood tomorrow (including myself) there is a 100% chance of rain. :-(
I am up for some sadistic Phantom rides in the rain, but then again hopefully it won't come to that. ;-)

Cold, yes. The rain is forecasted to taper off by 6pm Saturday.
