From 1929 until 1983, New Orleans was home to "Pontchartrain Beach Amusement Park" located at the end of Elysian Fields. Carnival games, live music, food, roller coasters and even a boardwalk, this was Louisiana's own Coney Island. I remember as a kid hearing my older brother and parents mention it from to time. Today, I stumbled across a few rare videos of the park and a website dedicated to preserving it's memory. Oh yeah, and Elvis Presley played there too.
