Can anyone identify the font used to spell out 'Beach Party'? Bonus points if it is available for free somewhere! Gratzi

It's almost certainly hand lettering, not a font. Note that the A's are different (the feet don't match).

In caps, you could get close with Luckiest Guy. Have you already browsed 50's fonts?

Yeah, it's probably hand lettering, but you could use two similar free fonts to vary any common letters. Here are two:

Hand-lettered, but very similar to Ad Lib.

It's definitely hand-drawn.
I also recommend Ad Lib. It's an oldie, but a goodie.

Is Tack-o-rama offline? They had some great mid-century fonts and clip art.

Yeah, that's modified Ad Lib. The text block above that says "It's what happens when 10,000 kids..." is set in that typeface.

Here's a free font called Tiki Tropic that's similar.
