Palisades Exhibit at the Fort Lee Museum

PALISADES AMUSEMENT PARK IN COLOR - JUNE 22nd THROUGH OCTOBER 28th, 2007

The Fort Lee Film Commission and Fort Lee Historical Society will curate this exhibit on the celebrated Palisades Amusement Park. This exhibit is centered around the recent purchase by the Fort Lee Historical Society of 125 Kodachrome slides of the park circa 1950s - 1960s. These rare color images will be enlarged and placed on display along with rare artifacts of the park's history. We will open this exhibit with a special reception on Friday, June 22nd at 7pm. Our guest speaker will be famed Palisades Amusement Park historian and documentary filmmaker Vince Gargiulo. Vince will introduce a screening of his documentary "Palisades Amusement Park: A Century of Fond Memories" at sunset in the patio area of the Fort Lee Museum. This exhibit will continue on weekends from Noon to 4pm and it is open to groups during the week by appointment. The museum is located at 1588 Palisades Avenue.
