This week, I’m going to write a two-part blog post for you guys … and, this time, I’m going to talk about my trip to Kennywood, which occurred one month ago. I went to Kennywood with my relatives for just over seven hours on July 26, 2019. I went there on KDKA Summerblast Day … and I was able to see several of KDKA’s personalities while I was there. I will talk about the personalities that I met there in the second part of this blog post, but, today, in the first part of this post, I will just talk about that exciting day in general.
I was at Kennywood Park from 12:30 in the afternoon until around 7:30 in the evening on July 26, 2019. I was able to enjoy myself while I was at the park. I went there with some of my relatives … and I was able to ride on the train, which is now part of Thomas Town. Thomas Town is an attraction in Kennywood that features things from Thomas The Tank Engine. Now, the train was the only thing that I rode on while I was there. I just walked around the park and saw lots of exciting things while I was at Kennywood.
Now, while I’m talking about Thomas Town, I was able to see KDKA’s Mobile Weather Lab, which is located near Thomas Town. I also snapped a selfie with the Mobile Weather Lab while I was there. Now, KDKA sometimes uses the Mobile Weather Lab during its newscasts … and they generally use it a lot whenever we have bad weather events, like snow storms and things like that.
I saw some nice-looking clouds in the skies above Kennywood while I was there. The clouds here are white, dark and grey … and I also saw some “blue holes” in the clouds as well.
While I was at Kennywood Park that evening, I bumped into three of my friends … and one of them is one of my neighbors on National Hill. I bumped into Karen, Josh and Amanda Schultz while I was at Kennywood. I sometimes see Josh and Amanda on National Hill … and Karen is one of my neighbors on National Hill.
Next time, I will wrap up this two-part blog post by telling you about some of the personalities that I saw while I was at Kennywood Park on July 26, 2019. I will give you a hint right now. One of them recently retired after working at KDKA for 37 years.
