Ep 105 | The Happiest Place on Eartha

“Step right up folks, the fun is about to begin!” One upon a time, those are the words that carnival barkers would yell to drum up excitement for the arrival of the circus or carnival. Today though, as those old styles of entertainment fade away, their brilliant and colorful history has come to be immortalized in El Cerritos “Playland Not At The Beach.” A museum unlike any other, it offers attendees an expansive set of retro and throwback arcade and carnival attractions. Today, our guest is Frank Biafore, the Fabulous Frank, who runs and operates Playland Not At The Beach, The Happiest Place on Earth, to talk to us about his own slice of joy and wonderment located right here in the East Bay.
