    HISTORICAL WEIRS BEACH NEON SIGN: GATEWAY TO SUMMER FUN!

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Ever since she was little, Brenda Olson and her family have gone to Weirs Beach in in Laconia, New Hampshire. “When I see the sign, it reminds me of all the fun I had in the area when I was young and when my son was growing up,” she said. From enjoying the go-karts with her brother in the ‘60s to seeing a double feature at the Weirs Beach drive-in with her son, Olson has fond memories of the local spot.

    The historical WEIRS BEACH neon sign welcomes visitors not only to Weirs Beach but also to the Lake Winnipesauke area. Visitors can travel by train, vehicle, motorcycle or by foot and enjoy the arcades along the boardwalk, take a boat cruise on the Mount Washington and/or enjoy a day at the lake on the Weirs Beach. The sign is also well known to motorcycle enthusiasts who frequent the area during the annual Laconia Motorcycle Week in June.

    According to the Lake Winnipesauke Historical Society, The WEIRS BEACH NEON SIGN was erected on July 19, 1956. Brenda E. Olson, photographer.
