Eight Flags Over Mississippi Deer Ranch, Biloxi – Mississippi Mondays September 2, 2019

I saw this video recently on YouTube – TV’s Robin, Burt Ward is Still Doing Heroic Things! – YouTube Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfJHB383hd4 (about 6:18 minutes long). I met Burt Ward, dressed as Robin many years ago. This was after the Batman TV series was over. He appeared in the early 1970s (probably 1972 or 1973) at Eight Flags Over Mississippi, which was a combination Deer Ranch (a petting zoo that included numerous other animals) and Six Gun Junction/Red Dog SaloonOld West venue, not too far from the beach in Biloxi, Mississippi. It’s no longer around as it was turned into a parking lot a long time ago. I lost the signed photo “Robin” gave me during a move. I chose the Eight Flags/Deer Ranch/Six Gun Junction/Red Dog Saloon as this week’s Mississippi Mondays post.

I briefly posted about Eight Flags back January 7, 2019 on this post – https://upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/2019/01/07/things-that-are-no-more-mississippi-mondays-january-7-2019/.
