When I was a kid, my family would take numerous vacations to Worlds of Fun in Kansas City, MO. It was the closest theme park to Lincoln and only about a 3 1/2 hour drive down. During my childhood obession with Rainbow Brite, there was a live action show that families could attend. During this show, they would pick a few kids out of the audience and you would get a giant magnifying glass and cap to help Rainbow Brite solve the "Mystery of the Missing Star Sprinkles!"
After being called on stage, maybe their director sensed my enthusiasm, saw my Rainbow Brite dress or just knew how many times I had dragged my Dad back to the show; but they picked me!
Looking back at these photos, I don't know how I wasn't terrified of the giant Sprites or Lurky. But it still remains a fond memory of my childhood and our family trips to Worlds of Fun.
