Tomorrow starts the annual Dairyfest and now all of the rides are up and ready to go. I was on the lot this morning and crews were washing tubs and rides preparing for the event. One crew was finishing up on the Super Loops set up and there were some game agents cleaning and setting up their joints. Temps were quite warm and humid with temps around 80. Even though the event doesn't start until tomorrow I thought I would give the trip report and then as I go to the event just add pictures and video to this thread. Here is what was there...


Super Loops
Crystal Caverns Glass House
Kiddie Flyer Swings
Hampton Cycles
Merry Go Round
Berry Go Round
Dragon Wagon
Super Slide
Fire Chief
Eli Wheel
Drop Zone Paratrooper


Not all were set up yet but here is what I did see...
Lucky Ducks
Balloon Darts
Fun Run (Off In The Parking Area)
Melissa's Goldfish Game
Fill 'Er Up


Elephant Ears/Funnel Cake Trailer
Connie's Candy Wagon
Classy Cafe

Final set up pictures are here....

I also was fortunate enough to be on the lot when they tested the Super Loops. I took a video (no sound) of that test run and it is posted here.

Nice trip report Mark, and great photos. Thanks for sharing with us. A&P is a very nice looking show from seeing all of the photos you have posted.

Thanks for the kind words regarding my pictures and trip report. Flamo, the camera is a Fuji Finepix A205. Just a 2 megapixel camera. One of these days I hope to upgrade.

Regarding A&P they are a great show. The owners are great people and they take good care of their rides, games and food trailers.

Went to the lot last night. Great weather, the crowds were small. There were times when a game would have a few patrons but for the most part things were slow. Food was selling but again no huge crowds. Posted some pictures both daylight and night pics here...

How old's that Glasshouse? Powers bought a Show-Me Glasshouse in 1993 with a very similar paintjob. It was later redone with a Browning front and then sold to Amusements of Buffalo. Never heard where it ended up when A of B folded.

Bill, I believe A&P has had that one since it was new...I could be wrong though. I think they got theirs in the 90's.
