NortH Tonowanda Blue whale and Pocos pizza

Hey I used to spend summers just down from the "blue whale car wash " (accrossed street )When I was a KId (longtime ago). I can remember the twin fair Amusment park 3guys or was it 2 guys. > I know they r gone.

And ridng my bike along the canal. Street names r foggy But It was always a great place to visit.

Some years ago I actually stopped and found Poccos Pizza (Pecco's ?)
They still there??

Later

Yeah I remember the amusement park and also the drive-inn that was there too. By any chance do you remember Helfs Hotdog stand that was on the corner of Niagara street and Kohler Street in Tonawanda back in the 80's. I remember going there and getting the treasure chest kids meal. lol

no Helfs was the only place that had them my dad worked for the owner he also had the business of the signs and searchlight the company was called P.O.S.S. Which meant Port-O-Signs and Searchlights. they were at the old Demler place on River Road and on Oliver street and then on Young Street. the owner's brother used to do the commercial for Recreational Warehouse he was the guy that used to fall in the pool lol.
