More than 100 persons weathered the storm to attend the New England Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions’ (NEAAPA) 105th Anniversary Education Conference & Annual Meeting March 12-16, in Mystic, Connecticut.
Due to the third “nor’easter” to strike New England in March, around 30 registered for the event were not able to attend as heavy snow and wind swept into the region, making travel difficult. Despite the wintry blast, organizers were pleased with the outcome as 130 were on hand for NEAAPA’s annual dinner meeting Tuesday evening. Highlight of the gala event was the induction of George Frantzis II into the NEAAPA Hall of Fame. An owner of Quassy Amusement & Waterpark, Middlebury, Connecticut, Frantzis was the third member of his family to go into the prestigious hall. He served as NEAAPA president in 1998 and ’99.
