Any dates for Bloomington IN yet?
I've never been "with it", just been an interested observer of carnivals for more than 50 years.
Johnny's United Shows..."A Family Tradition" and "All for Fun, Fun for All".
The carnival of my youth, which had roots that originated in my hometown.

CVS used to have a neat looking Rock-o-Plane and Rollo Plane. Does anyone have any old photos of these pieces of equipment?

yes i just got done setting it up, it come from BGS, its a little rough, but i think it will be a nice peice after we clean it up, it was 2 trailer and it got sent on one, everything just loaded on it, but it will work, the show is looking real good, redone hymi, wheel coming from the factory,scooters looking real good, new paint and light packages on some rides, overall, just getting here, i think that we will be noticed and their has already been a positve change for the better.

Why would you act like Cumberland Valley Shows (CVS) was done and gone when your sister was over here last year??? I think you had visited a couple time also. So what gives???

i think there are alot of people that didnt expect to see you guys open much longer.no hard feelings but in todays economy when you hear stuff like that its easy to believe,no matter how much money the people use to have, or do have, or dont have or?so how would you compare the show as far as route, and equipment, and debt, and the operation in general to when things were run differently?i hear things are more laid back over there now?

HINT! Hit the space bar twice after each sentence. Capitalize the first letter in the sentence.

Hit enter twice when starting a new paragraph. You are not too old to learn, are you?

I don't think just because a show "downsizes" that it means they are struggling or closing. Personally I think Jeremy made a pretty smart move by doing so. I would think it's a much less stressful competing against 15-20 ride shows versus giant shows, especially with shows like the conglomerate. Also, the name Cumberland Valley Shows still has a very good reputation among committees and people who attend fairs in the states where they are routed.

ok, i think the show looks great, jermey has his heart in it and cares. We pulled everything out of the mud, had a great set-up in the rain with all the guys stepping up to the plate. Brad, you should know i can move and push this forward, CVS is and will be a great show, big, little or what ever size. I have a great crew over here. you should really watch the show this year. if it was rough in the past, people will be saying, wow what happened. And thats a fact!!!!!!!
