In honor of the 60th anniversary of Archie
Comics, July 27 and 28 of 2002 was set aside by the City of Los Angeles as Archie and Friends Weekend. As part of the
weekend festivities, Ron Dante made a special appearance at Pinks Hot Dogs to sing and sign autographs. Appearing with
Ron was the original "I'm gonna make your life so sweet" candy girl, Toni Wine! This was the first time Ron and Toni ever appeared together as The Archies,
and we have some never-before-seen pix right here!
The pix on this page are courtesy of Ron Dante.
