American Legion Carnival Bon-Go Park, July 3-8, 1933
The American Legion Louis E. Davis Post No. 56 sponsored a six-day carnival at Bon-Go Park, the popular leisure grounds a few miles south of downtown Bloomington. The carnival included the Beckmann and Gerety Shows, billed as “America’s cleanest carnival.”
The view here is looking northeast. That’s U.S. 51 fronting the park grounds. Bon-Go Park (also known as “Bongo” without the hyphen) is now G.J. Mecherle Memorial Park, commonly known as State Farm Park.
