Dad Came To America To Work At Pixie Kitchen
by Tina Rasmussen
My dad, a Dane, met Jerry and Lu Parks on a ship in South America in 1962. They offered him a job in America, "the Land of Opportunity."
Dad came to America that year and brought my mom over in 1963 for their honeymoon. Dad continued to work at Pixie Kitchen until Pixieland was built, then he worked out there.
My memories are very fond. I spent many nights up above the kitchen for sleepovers. I remember the basement amusement type area, with a monkey - COCO. I loved seeing the memorabilia, of which I have none... :(
