Thanks to the response to the Raft-O-Rama Missing Years article, we now know the theme for 1975 (Favorite TV Commercials) and 1976 (Bicentennial). 1977 may have been TV Shows or Restaurants.
Can you help? Raft-O-Rama wants to outfit the lake with a T-shirt that includes every theme from the event’s inception in 1961. As you can see below, the missing links are 1969-1973, 1978-1979, and 1982-1988.
The 2021 theme is The 1960s, marking Raft-O-Rama’s big anniversary celebration. Some of the Raft-O-Rama’s team explain the concept in this short video. Be sure to view to the end to catch a smile.
Now here are the known Raft-O-Rama themes going back to 1961. If you can help, please leave a comment or email ClarkLakeSpirit@gmail.com.
