This past weekend we celebrated Candlelight at Disneyland park. As we were getting ready for the event, we came across this photo from our archives.
Candlelight started in 1958 at Disneyland park, but the first photo we have of the ceremony is from 1959.
The colors are so vivid, and Main Street, U.S.A. looks much like it does today. It seems as if the photo was just taken yesterday. However, if you look a little more closely, you’ll notice that the members of the choir are sporting various looks from the ’50s.
Look at the people in the crowd along Main Street and see how well-dressed they are.
