In 1999, a group of friends from the southern California goth community gathered at Disneyland on the third Sunday in August, for an unofficial Disney event called “Bats Day in the Fun Park“. The next year, more people got wind of the gathering. Year after year, the attendees grew, until 2006, when Bats Day 8 drew approximately 3000! For the past three years, my family and I have been part of this annual event at Disneyland, travelling all the way from Philadelphia.
I still can’t decide which is cooler…. Seeing all the goths at Disneyland or seeing all of the “regular” guests seeing all the goths at Disneyland. Bats Day in the Fun Park 2007 is August 17-19. Hope to see you there!
