"There once was an enchanted forest along the Magothy River, where children rode a Ferris Wheel and played arcade games, families picnicked by the water, the faithful were baptized in the river, and James Brown performed for Saturday night revelers in the dance pavilion." - Jack Powder, Baltimore Sun (2002).
