Too many photos (over 150) to put in the topic, so here is the link. Day and night shots, all over the fairgrounds, not just the midway. Enjoy.

First let me say I grew up working on Royal American and then a smaller show out of St.Louis with my grandfather until I went to college and got a real job.

This weekend my wife and I took a trip to Sedalia to look around at the state fair, it was the first time I had been on a midway in about two years. After checking out all the other attractions we took a stroll down the midway just for fun and I will say in my opinion the joints didn't have that "state fair" feel to me and it seemed that there were agents in only about half of the joints. It was only two in the afternoon but I know the few state fairs I worked at being in your joint and grinding was a way to make sure you made a nice envelope at the end of the spot.

Most of the rides looked really nice though as did all of the food.

// I really hope this dosnt sound too negative, I was just trying reminiscing out loud about the good ol' days.

It is nice, and they are friendly people, too. They may have more than one unit, not sure, they also play the Michigan State Fair and the Tennessee Valley Fair with us (booked by the fairs, not us). They were also in Hamburg, Michigan while we were there this year and last year.
