Despite the unwelcomed arrival of nemesis Rosedale Center in neighboring Roseville, the 1970's continued to be a prosperous time for Apache Plaza. The mall still held the crown as the "Center of the Community", hosting numerous events, and even bringing in the occasional celebrity.
The legendary Captain Kangaroo also made an appearance at Apache. If anyone can confirm the year of this photo let me know! (courtesy Apache Plaza)
I don't know who this band is, but they look like they ROCK! This is assumedly from a 1976 Bicentennial celebration of some sort. Note the lps and 8-tracks for sale at the front of the stage! (courtesy Apache Plaza)
