I visited a very small show last night in the mountains of VA at the Bland County Fair. Brinkley's Amusements from NC played it. I had never heard of them but what a nice small show. Every ride was freshly painted, spotless, 100% bulb count. Even the inflatables were in perfect condition. Ride ops all nicely dressed. They take a lot of pride in their show. It was very late (most people were leaving as I arrived) so my photos aren't going to be really good.
It is so nice to happen upon a show at a fair in the middle of nowhere that is so impressive. They carry mostly kiddie rides,but had the most beautiful Frolic I've ever seen!

yes Bossman, I thought you might know them. They said they take a lot of food trailers into the NCSF on the independent side.
