This is a photo of the entrance gate to "Delta Village," which was an amusement park located in Tallulah, Louisiana, just across the river from Vicksburg. Delta Village lived and died in the 1970s. The park had about a half dozen rides, a petting zoo, a faux Old Western street, and a "Storybook Land." I went to Delta Village probably about 1973. What I remember most was the 'Wild West Medicine Show' which apparently featured a character named "Chief Running Wind" and a bunch of cowboys getting shot and falling off of the faux western buildings. This was like red meat for a ten year old boy, but in retrospect my aunt who took me deserves a medal of some sort. Not that I remember it, but Delta Village also had one of the first coin-operated, quick-draw skills game with a robot gunslinger, and you could watch a chicken play the piano for a nickel. There was a gravity house, a log flume, a train ride with a cave and a gorilla, and a boat ride with simulated explosions in the river (I'm sure I liked that too). Anyway, all was for naught, as Delta Village was kaput by the 1980s and so far as I know nothing at all remains of the park today. Please note in the photo the costumed folks on the left, including the rabbit. I hope for their sake this was taken in the winter months.
