Wanting to see fireworks!

The best fireworks are in Burbank, thanks to the City of Burbank!  The best location to view fireworks is from the Starlight Bowl.  There are some lower fireworks that entertain the crowd that you do not see if you are not at the Starlight Bowl.  Along with the background music it is a show not to be missed.  See you there!

Can you be “discovered” at the Starlight Bowl?

Annette Funicello, born October 22, 1942, in Utica, New York.  According to the Studio, Walt spotted her in a performance of Swan Lake at the Starlight Bowl in Burbank (just for the record, her dancing teacher insists it was The Nutcracker Suite), and she was given a two week test assignment as a Mouseketeer.  “Black hair, brown eyes. singer,  and dancer.”  Concerned that her last name might be difficult for audiences to remember, Annette considered changing her name to Annette Turner. Walt vetoed the idea, telling her that if she was talented, the name wouldn’t matter. Annette was the last of the original Mouseketeers to be hired, and would remain under contract to the Studio until 1970.
