Kato Ballroom - Day - Shadow Front

    Newer Older

    Kato Ballroom in Mankato, MN. Kato ballrooms claim to fame is its one of the last places Buddy Holly and Big Bopper played before dying in a plane crash on Feb. 2, 1959.

    So I guess you could say it was one of the last places music lived.

      I absolutely love this. And I don't normally like HDR. I don't really know where to begin, but I think the best thing is the shadow of the letters. And the way the shadow of the O is split. But I love it all really.

      I remember a buddy of mine sneaking in a bottle of strawberry schnapps during our Mankato West Sr. prom at the Kato Ballroom – it broke and looked like he was shot in his puffy shirt. Excellent capture!!

      The Kato Ballroom... first of all thanks for sharing such a beauty of a shot. Second wow a blast from the past... a spot for a few grand MSU Rugby parties back in the days.

      I love this photo! I'm having my wedding reception at the Kato. Our photographer and I have been looking for great backdrops for wedding day photos. Would you be willing to divulge what time you took this photo? I would love to recreate it with my fiancé and me in the shot.
