Kissel Entertainment uses a lot of red, yellow and blue and it looks sharp!

There's a good example of using basic colors and using designs to make them work together better....I remember seeing some stuff on Poor Jack with the same colors that looked like hell...

I've always been partial to the basic colors. Just have never been a fan of the orange, lime green, purples...I even like the old two color combination of red and white that was used years ago by shows...or blue white and gold...

At one point & time on my dad's show every single piece we owned was Red, White & Blue. If I never have to use those colors again on a midway it will be to soon. The only thing with that color scheme that I have seen & liked is the Dream Catcher...I can't remember the name of the show it is on but that thing looks sweet.

Every piece the same color scheme would be a bit of overkill and I could understand why you'd hate that. I was speaking more of canvas and trucks than actual rides....

Belle City uses a lot of orange, white, blue and yellow..it looks really good.

How about Bates's Trucks...All Blue trucks with Orange Grills...Looks like hell. There is no other orange anywhere on the show...

Right...I think it's from guys that want other carnies to think they played on the Big Show....I bet half the joints out there with the "Wavey W" on them never even played a spot with Wade...



I've been on show that dictated the color of your canvas, but does a show like Wade, with a custom canvas color scheme, sell canvas to independents, like shows sell shirts? That would be a helluva ding.

When we were with Drago their trucks were white and the grill was the color of the ride. That was the back in the days when every ride had a truck.

I know some guys that got 3 or 4 different tops for their joints depending on what show they are with...
