The Sandusky Library has released the trailer for the library's new 30-minute movie about music at Cedar Point about 100 years ago. I think the band is playing the "Cedar Point March."
You'll have to wait a few weeks to see the movie, but the library's series of related programs begins today (i.e., Monday, Oct. 7). Archives librarian Ron Davidson will speak at 6:30 p.m. today at the library on "Music is Life: A Brief History of Bands in Early Sandusky."
