A week ago, our Facebook Fan page had a rather paltry number of fan photos.
Paltry as in 38. (And one of the 38 was a photo of our brochure askew on someone's coffee table.)
Something had to be done.
How 'bout a little contest?
...with two free tickets awarded to those who post our favorite photos. Suddenly, our 24,000+ fans jumped into action. We now have a far more respectable selection of 350+ fan photos. Here's this week's winning photo:
This is Canarissa; she's two years old and is from Illinois.
Do you have some great photos? Head over to Facebook and become a "fan" then upload some great photos, either taken here at the park or somehow related to a visit here. You must be at least 13 to enter and sorry, but you can't be a park employee (or a relative of one). Your photo will show up on the HoliBlog and quite possibly in a photo slideshow on our website.
We'll pick a photo a week for the next three weeks. And if you didn't win this time, don't worry -- you still have a shot next week; we'll select from the full pool of photos each week.

Our first batch of Pilgrims Plunge b-roll (that's the footage you give TV news photographers as a consolation prize when you won't let them take their big honkin' cameras on a ride) was on a cold and cloudy day. On the re-take day last week, we had clouds again. But they were nothing at all like the first time.

Yesterday evening, the Fox game show featured a question about three cities/towns: Which U.S. state included a fort named Wayne, a city called Gary and a town called Santa Claus.
Larry got 'er done.
In fact, the Sleeveless One declared he'd visited all three Hoosier communities. Meanwhile, a factoid popped up on the screen informing viewers that Santa Claus, Indiana, has a theme park called Holiday World. (Please excuse the slight pause as I do a happy dance.)
Thanks to a Twitter friend who sent the photo and to all those who contacted us to let us know that Larry the Cable Guy is, indeed, smarter than a 5th grader.

Okay, so maybe this fellow isn't belting out an aria from the Barber of Seville.
...but it sure looks like he's singin' in the rain as his Pilgrims Plunge boat flies down the drop.
Your turn. What's he singing?
And don't tell me he's not singing. Just look at the lady riding with him. It's obvious she's used to saying, "Please, no autographs!"

...the HoliPixie appears in the park!
Distantly related to the Tooth Fairy, the HoliPixie flitters about--checking lights--to make sure we don't waste any electricity.
We recently caught the HoliPixie on our security tapes...
The HoliPixie, it turns out, will be house-sitting for Santa at the North Pole soon, so we're hoping this video will be enough to inspire all of our employees to remember to switch off lights when they're not needed.
(And now that we know that creature is out and about, we'll also be sure to lock our doors -- and windows!)
