One of the most unusual
Fourth of July celebrations took place on this date in 1976 at Kings Island.
Officials say Paul Revere was married to Sandra Campbell in front of the Kings Island
Theater by none other than Uncle Sam!
Revere, leader of the musical group
Paul Revere and The Raiders, was asked by the park to play two concerts on July 4
and agreed... on one condition: He and Sandy could also be married there.
Rev. Gene Skipworth of Forest Park United Methodist Church in Cincinnati
performed the ceremony in an authentic Uncle Sam costume.
The concerts took
place following the wedding in the park's picnic grove area.
