You all in SC and NC keep up with the weather, or really anyone along the East Coast, this storm just jumped up to a CAT 4 and headed to SC/NC, they are comparing to Hugo.

Everyone stay safe.

are any shows tearing town preparing for this storm?

Not sure who all is where, but I see Strates is in Danville VA with the big wheel and other rides up. Based on what the weather channel is saying it looks like that fair will surely see some effects of this storm

who else is set up in the path of Florence?

1. Mtn State Fair Asheville (weather channel is saying this storm will turn towards Greenville and Asheville and stall bringing bad flooding).

2. Powers is in Concord I believe

I know there are some other shows in NC like Big Rock, Powers and Thomas, and maybe Reithoffer (that may be next week).

We are hunkered down in Sanford, NC praying for the best but bracing for the worst.

Greater Pee Dee Fair in Florence closed last night as well.

Actually I think the mtn State fair closed at 5pm on Saturday night instead of Sunday.


We still played our small fair with our concessions here but we were down about 50%.
