Independence Day 1964 Miller Park, Bloomington

For well over a century, Miller Park on Bloomington’s west side has served as home to many the city’s Fourth of July activities, including the evening fireworks show.

Who remembers when Miller Park featured a Ferris wheel and other carnival-like rides? Who remembers spending Independence Day at Miller Park with friends and family?

I Remember Miller Park having rides. There was one called the whip that did me in each time I rode it. It was during one of those rides that I realized I would never become a fighter pilot.
