SPitDUDES remembers ‘Paragon Park’
If you were born prior to the late 1970’s and you grew up anywhere in Massachusetts, you’ve probably been to, or at least have heard of ‘Paragon Park’.
It’s an American classic. <<pause for laughter>>
We’re serious. We all know it wasn’t Coney Island, and yes, the last few years of the park’s existence resembled the last few years of Jim Rice’s career. However, it’s the overall body of work that has to be considered when assessing a final grade or opinion.
‘Paragon Park’, much like Jim Rice, had its heyday, and then some.
‘Paragon Park’ opened back in 1905 on Nantasket Beach in Hull, and for sixty years or more, it was the hottest spot to be during the summer months. Check out ParagonParkMemories.com
Nowadays all people want to do is go to the lousy Cape or one of those crappy islands.
‘SPitDUDES’ went to ‘Paragon Park’ plenty of times to justify their latest shirt design to help commemorate the legacy of ‘Paragon Park’.
A significant piece of history still remains down on Nantasket Beach. The Paragon Carousel. Or if you prefer, ‘The Flying Horses’. To continue our generous ways, we are committing some of the proceeds from the shirt sales to the ‘Friends of the Paragon Carousel’. They are a non-profit organization dedicated to maintaining the carousel and keeping the historic Paragon Carousel open to the public.Our shirts will be in the carousel gift shop by mid April, so in the mean time, check them out, and learn about the park & the carousel’s history at: www.ParagonCarousel.com
Go to our shop and be one of the first to don a Paragon Park T, and donate to the horses!
Here is a ‘Paragon Park Video’ I found on You Tube.
