Title:Frontier Village - The Last Day (2014)

Extremely rare film of Frontier Village in San Jose, California. Frontier Village is a gone-but-not-forgotten charming regional theme park. In September of 1980 Carol and I went to the park several times during the last few weeks of its existence. We captured the very last day with Super 8mm Sound movie film on September 28, 1980. Everything you see here was happening for the last time at the park, including the popular gun fight. The production has been 34 years in the making! What set things in motion for me to finally complete the video was quality digitization of the Super 8mm Sound movie reels. My sincere thanks to David Manzo of the 'Lost California' TV series for accomplishing that. Set your computer or TV to the highest resolution it will allow (hopefully 1080p), sit back and enjoy! I hope you enjoy this jump back in time, many of us still miss the charming little park. In fact, in 2000 I created and premiered www.frontiervillage.net/, the Remembering Frontier Village website. That website resulted in annual Frontier Village fan/employee reunion picnics at Edenvale Park, for which I am extremely proud!
