Balacade, Bala, Ontario

What a great story!
My late father would save up his quarters and send the kids into town to play when we were visiting.
It was so much fun, and it was safe in those days. They are now 29, 31 and 35 years old!

Paul and Patricia Arney have decided to sell the Balacade, the arcade they have run in Bala, Ontario for more than 50 years.

This was 2007!
Caitlin and JL visited it!
How much fun. I didn't realize that the Arneys had been running it this long!

It's sad to see good times pass. 50 years is a long run.

Such a neat place with a lot of family history. Hopefully it's new owner will keep it going.

that is a long run. With luck, the place can continue on as is.

Wow! 50 years is a very long time. How sad to see it being sold. Hopefully some body else will buy it and bring even more life into it.
