At least the story posted this morning about the show out in Oklahoma is a positive note.
Read about that incident with her husband's boat, well that is how most dictator's act. Feel for you guys and the show, with her in office it may be a rough year.

I agree 100% - Whitless is also known as "she who must be obeyed" I would hate to think of a show traveling a long distance to come here and then have her lock down again at the last moment. The Michigan State Fair is still listed as being on - Arnolds are in Florida - I'm thinking most other spots they have here not happening - it really puts them between a rock and a hard place as the old saying goes.

It all depends on Supreme Chancellor Whitmer. If she continues to extend the stay at home orders two weeks at a time throughout the summer... it won't matter. She seems to be hellbent on keeping the state closed at all costs. Time will tell.

These are both large (for Michigan) County Fairs here. Not sure about the Michigan State Fair (Arnolds) as the location last I saw had been turned into an overflow hospital for COVID cases. I do know the Traverse City Cherry festival (Arnolds) has been cancelled.

Well guess anything is possible this year.

If any fairs do open and shows come in, will they be able to fill the rides they bring, in other words will enough folks come to the fair to ride, maybe so, maybe not.

Of course the show wants to make money, but to pull all of that stuff out, transport it, set it up and then have only hundreds show up to the fair instead of thousands.....its got to be on their mind.

Someone said it earlier, not matter what if there is any kind of fair season it will be light.
