Blue Streak Coaster at Conneaut Lake Park in the Running to Compete for $50,000 Pepsi Refresh Grant
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Blue Streak Restoration Project, Pepsi Refresh, Trustees of Conneaut Lake Park

Conneaut Lake, PA – The Trustees of Conneaut Lake Park are proud to announce that the historic Blue Streak roller coaster is in the running to receive a grant from the Pepsi Refresh Project. The 2010 Pepsi Refresh Project is a grant program that awards $1,300,000 each month to the projects in each award category that receive the most votes from the public. The Blue Streak Restoration Project has qualified for the July voting period. The ten projects in the $50,000 category that have the most votes as of the end of July will each receive the funding.

Go to www.refresheverything.com/conneautlakeparkbluestreak to register to vote – once registered, you simply click on “Vote for this idea”. There is no fee to do so. You can (and should!) vote every day. The leader board on the website will indicate the ranking of each project. You must be at least 13 years old to vote.

Work has begun and is progressing on the 1938 Blue Streak, which holds the distinction of being 1 of only 2 remaining of its kind. But, as was explained at the Coaster Convention on June 24, the reconstruction progress is exceeding the funding. Help us earn the votes we need to qualify for the grant by voting every day, and spreading the word to others. Let’s get the Blue Streak back on track!
