So my mom pulled this out of storage for me the other day.
Yep, that’s right: a genuine Crystal Beach sweatshirt!
This is as 1989 as it gets, people. Taylor Swift wasn’t even born yet when this existed (neither was I, but we can all agree I’m way cooler that T-swizzle stick.)
That neon pink (and it is neon pink) is ridiculous, and I love it.
Crystal Beach is one of those places that bonds the US/Canadian border together. Whether it was the Laff in the Dark or the Cyclone, everyone has a favorite Crystal Beach ride.
The irony in this sweatshirt was that nobody expected this to be the last year. That benign smiling sun was about to set, and Crystal Beach would end its existence with the end of the decade.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need some loganberry and a lollipop.
