Florida Strawberry Festival Breaks Records Under New President

Florida Strawberry Festival Breaks Records Under New President

  Many large fairs celebrate and promote a state's agriculture, and many smaller fairs focus not just on focus on a single crop, like citrus of peanuts. As a testament to the importance the titular fruit means to Florida, the Florida Strawberry Festival is the only single crop event that is also one of the top 40 fairs in North America (#27 in 2023). And, Florida's largest fair. The 2024 “Berry Fest” also was the first for a new president, Kyle Robinson, who took over for long-term veteran Paul Davis, who retired after last year's fair. “It was my first time flying without a net,” said Robinson. The net may have been removed but he wasn't flying blind. Of course there was a transition plan in place, and by all accounts the changing of the guard went smoothly. Robinson also had another advantage, “I grew up ...   [read more]

Reithoffer Shows Ready for a High Capacity Season

Reithoffer Shows Ready for a High Capacity Season

  Less is more, and in the case of Reithoffer Shows, much more. The oldest, family owned continually operated midway provider celebrates its 128th year in business this season with a realignment of its ride arsenal. Post-lockdown, the company has added no less than six new high-capacity rides since 2022, but what seemed like a sudden buying spree was actually due to supply line disruptions caused by coronavirus. The equipment was due to arrive earlier and in a more scheduled fashion. Instead, deliveries staggered throughout the season meant that the new additions were not available for the entire route.In 2024, the new rides – which include The Hulk, The Beast, , a New York City-themed Fun House,  a winter themed Iced Jet-bobsled music ride, and a Wave Swinger — which Rick Reithoffer describes as his “most gorgeous ...   [read more]

  The Alabama National Fair and Agricultural Expo, a staple in the Montgomery community for over 70 years, is addressing a recent fire incident that occurred on its fairgrounds on Saturday, March 16th, 2024. At approximately 9:30 PM on Saturday, March 16th, a fire broke out on the fairgrounds premises. The Montgomery Fire Department responded swiftly to the scene, deploying their resources promptly to contain and extinguish the fire, minimizing its spread and mitigating potential damage to surrounding structures. After thorough investigation, it has been determined that the cause of the fire was electrical in nature. The devastation wrought by the flames is profound. We mourn the loss of the building housing vital equipment, including multiple forklifts and UTVs, along with all hand tools and power tools essential for the setup of our food vendors on our independent midway, outdoor shows, as well as our educational agricultural displays. The scale of this loss underscores the gravity of ...   [read more]

  San Antonio — Towering 80 feet tall and stretching its limbs to 147' high, the Kraken will make its US debut this week in San Antonio, Texas on the Wade Shows midway. The ride was originally ordered from KMG in the Netherlands in November of 2022.  The ride was originally scheduled to make its debut at the 2024 South Florida Fair in West Palm Beach, but production and shipping delays pushed delivery back several months.Marina and Johan Small, owners of Iconic Midway Rides are the visionaries behind the ride and they are thrilled to be bringing it to Fiesta Carnival. “We wanted to bring a ride to the US that was going to be a true head-turner”, said Marina Zaitshik-Small, “and after doing research, we settled on the Kraken”.The ride is a pendulum-type ride with a swinging arm similar to other midway and fair attractions, but coming in at over twice the size. The ride will move on three large tractor trailer loads as it traverses the country, ...   [read more]

  The OABA is hosting an advocacy event for HR 1787 - CARE Act (Carnivals Are Real Entertainment) from May 6-8 in Washington DC.  Everyone is welcome to join!  For more information, visit the OABA's web site.This act would provide us with employment security for years to come.  We need your help to assure this act makes it into the upcoming spending bill.   The CARE Act has bi-partisan support. It is not an immigration issue. It is a workforce issue.  Passage of HR 1787 will: Clarify an existing category of visas for foreign workers, the P Visa, which covers the entertainment industry. Carnival workers should've been included in this category years ago. Solve the mobile amusement industry's most pressing issue – having enough reliable workers to operate safely at full capacity. Free up about 10,000 H2B visas for the many other industries (fishery, landscaping, resorts) that also need reliable foreign labor. This issue pertains not only to ...   [read more]
