Happy 52nd anniversary to the Calico Mine Ride!
I have had a digital camera for 10 years now, and from comparing photos that I have taken of the miners over the past decade I have observed that the miners have had a few wardrobe changes over the years! Let me show you what I mean…
Here is one of the miners panning for gold in the Lake Room. Although he has worn the same outfit for the past 9 years, you can see that he has changed his hat a couple of times!
Here is another miner operating a crank in the shoring room. Although he has worn the same outfit for the past 8 years, you can see that he has changed his hat a few times as well!
Just a little further along in the shoring room is a miner driving a stake with a hammer. As you can see, over the past 8 years he has worn the same outfit, but he has changed his hat a few times as well!
Just before the mine train exits out the opening to go outdoors and across the bridge, there is a miner to the right. As you can see he has had a wardrobe change!
Here is an exterior photo of the Calico Mine Ride that I took during Knott’s Scary Farm of 2012. The interior and exterior were illuminated in green, and the ride was themed to the green witch!
This is one of Bud Hurlbut’s string bow ties that he often wore.
Hope you enjoyed!
