Oh yeah, forgot about that---Our Lady of Loretto Catholic Church.

My trip list just keeps getting bigger and bigger. LOL




They have a Spring and Autumn festival. Skerbeck plays both. Skerbeck has played the September date since at least 1990. It was Crown Amusements before that, but around 1989 Dick Carl started playing down South after Labour Day, so he gave up all his September/October Michigan spots, one of which was Our Lady of Loretto.

Thanks for the info Tony.

That will make for a nice Saturday if the weather cooperates, since I will be free this weekend to visit lots:

Playworld in Dearborn Heights (St. Sebastian)

Elliotts in Detroit (as noted above)

Skerbeck in Berkley (Catalpa, south of 12 Mile, at the Civic Centre)

Mid America #2 in Warren (Warren Woods, 12 Mile and Schoenner)

Arnold #2 in Utica (M-59 and Schoenner)

Mid America #1 in St. Clair Shores (St. Joan of Arc)

Plus Wade #1 in Taylor (Gibraltar Trade Centre) and Wade #3 in Ypsilanti (Lincoln High School).

Gotta make sure the camera batteries are charged up. LOL LOL

Same spot I saw them at justin.It was a small strip mall just south of 96 on cedar street.My wifes company owns MILL POND VILLAGE right next door to the lot, we were on a "bussiness"trip!
That would be the old Light Guard Armory lot then. Skerbeck played that spot for several years too. Decent little spot. If I remember correctly, a church sponsors the event.

And yes, Elliotts is really became a beautiful show that is for certain.

I saw them in Holt a few days ago in passing on my way to a friends bonfire party.
