The 50th Anniversary Celebration at Six Flags St. Louis, Eureka, Missouri

With any grand celebration of this magnitude the day began with a few speeches and presentations.  Probably the coolest was when Park President Phil Liggett brought up Security Supervisor Fred Desalme up to honor him for fifty years of service at the park.  Fred started with the park and after fifty years of service his hard earned retirement was right around the corner.
