Well the FSF is but a memory now its time for the Strawberry Festival. I dont know whats in store there this year since Wade will NOT be with BCA. But It'll be spectacular im sure. I pass by the grounds literally EVERY SINGLE day on my way to work. I thought it would be fun if i snapped a few pictures each day to kind of show the setup progress. They are not the best they are from the road and i dont have inside access to the grounds but ill get what i can. I will update it each day so be sure to check back. Heres the link:

http://community.webshot...20NpuEAP?vhost=community 

Rides you can see thus far:

-Giant Wheel
-Skywheel
-Gravitron or Starship (Cant Tell)
-Mega Drop
-Crazy Mouse Coaster
-Sea Dragon
-Rock and Roll

and a few more enjoy this daily photo blog. If its a bad idea just let me know and i will cease to post it. Enjoy

Anything else A of A is bringing? What is the other coaster? I was wondering who would be booked in since Wade is in Orlando.

The other coaster is probably their Avalanche coaster. It's a larger size Pinfari Zyklon.

Is it true this fair used to have a Tivoli Force 10? A friend of mine who lives in Orlando said one of the fairs around him used to always have one. I've never even see the Force in person and would love to track one down. Do any even travel anymore?

Wow. Doesnt it usually go to Orlando wih Wade? ANything else unique gonna be there that normally is not? I knew BCA had some big holes to fill because some BIG iron is missing from Wade. (Giant Wheel, Water Flume, Zyklon, Enterprise, Spin Out and some others.) Im looking forward to it shaping up to be a great midway. Espcially with BCA they always put on a top notch show

Jimmy, the Mardi Gras looked great in Port Charlotte. Wish I my pics would have done it justice.
