Despite Rain, Community Supports Osceola County Fair

  An annual February Florida tradition, last year the Kissimmee Valley Livestock Show & Osceola County Fair was one of the few full-fairs to conclude undisrupted by the global coronavirus pandemic. This year, it is one of the first full-fairs to be held as the fair industry as well as the economy begins what so far seems a steady-if-slower-than-we-may-like ascent to recovery.Given this scenario, the Osceola County Fair is understandably under far more scrutiny as a possible harbinger of the season to come than previous years. The genuinely positive takeaway from this year's fair is not just that the attendance dip was far less steep that anticipated, but weather may have played a bigger role than fear a fair wasn't safe.

Craftsmen Industries acquires Chester Built Trailers

  Mark Steele, Co-Owner of Craftsmen Industries, is pleased to announce that his company has acquired Chester Built Trailers. “The acquisition is complete.

  In an announcement to come next week, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine will allow fairs and festivals to operate in the state with restrictions this Spring.  The move will allow events up to 30% of capacity for outdoor venues. "There are so many people who were waiting for this day, I know you've received the calls and the texts, and I have too from people who were looking to plan for the future, and now, I think, it's reassuring to everybody that the planning can begin, that we can begin down that road back to normal,” Lt. Gov. Jane Husted said.The announcement, made early, will allow events and carnivals to plan ahead for opening, something that has been missing in other state orders.  With events and routing taking time to plan, the "go ahead" must be given well in advance in order to plan and hold an event.  The early announcement will give Ohio amusement business participants ample time to do so.The announcement next week will clarify provisions ...   [read more]
