Also there were a couple of locations that had history of the fair and I took a few pictures of these displays. Some of the displays included old ride pictures, old season passes and fair posters. The memorabilia pictures I took can be seen here.

Jagger thanks for the comments. Cokomocola, I took pictures of all of the food joints that were on the lot with the exception of the ice cream parlor in the commercial exhibit. It is just a small fair so the food that was there was likely more than enough.

As far as the Spin Out, I was wondering if anyone knew where they got that ride. This was the first time I had seen the ride with them and was curious of the ride's history. I do think it made for a nice addition to the show.
