Just found out after many years of SMA playing our county fair in Lancaster SC. The fair opens this tuesday with World of Mirth Amusements? Does anyone know what rides they feature and anything about the show.

The World of Mirth I know was Little Richard Thomas. But I did not think he had a show anymore.

The World of Mirth was a railroad carnival from 1933 to 1963. Bob Goldsack wrote a good book about the show and it may still be in print.

Must also be a new show with same name

Interesting. I have a poster from the late 50s of the W. of M. show. Hey Jagger, can you get your hands on a poster and whatll you trade for it?

Magic Midways; is that Red Roach's show? The last I heard was his show was not in real good condition. Anyone have an update on this? Thanks.
