June 2018 Riddle Contest ~~~
⚾ Redlands children can win six Diamond Club behind-home-plate tickets and two VIP parking passes to the Sunday, June 24, 2018, Angels vs. Toronto Blue Jays baseball game. ⚾
⚾ Riddle for June 2018:
Hey kids! Let’s see if you know or can figure it out
The historical answer to this riddle about:
An auditorium, you may already know,
Was built here in town, 90-ish years ago.
With rows of seats, a balcony, a basement, and stage,
Made of solid concrete, never showing its age.
The roof with big timbers, wood floors buffed and polished.
But some folks decided it should be demolished!
For generations, it became a beloved venue,
But some wanted something else, something brand new.
So, WHACK! on the wall went a big wrecking ball!
Bounced off, left a dent, but that’s about all.
No way would that strong auditorium fall!
It’ still standing today, it’s a place you can go
To hear a band, or a speech, or to go see a show.
Hooray for the concrete! It’s still hard as a rock!
It was named for a person, though, not a “tick-tock.”
⚾ To enter: When you have your answer, send an email with your best guess, name, age and phone number to email@example.com or bring your entry to the Young Readers’ Room, A.K. Smiley Public Library, 125 W. Vine St., Redlands, CA. 92373
⚾ Only 6- to 12-year-old children who live in Redlands may enter.
⚾ All correct answers will be entered into a random drawing. One entry per child will be valid.
⚾ Answers must be submitted by Sunday, June 17, 2018, and the winner will be notified Monday, June 18, 2018.
The contest is co-sponsored by the Rochford Foundation, the A.K. Smiley Public Library, and the Redlands Daily Facts.
Answer the June 2018 Los Angeles Angels Baseball Riddle Contest and take your family to a major league baseball game!
