Appears somewhat light on rides from when I was there in the past.
It is what you learn, after you know it all, that counts.

I am probably remembering before that in the late 1990s when Reithoffer Green unit went in there.

Reithoffer Green Unit and Arbroo Shows are essentially the same thing.

Add B and B ride Co.to that list..We played it in either 81 or 82---We only had about 10 rides and as I recall it was a busy spot...I enjoyed the town itself also..jeff

You are correct because the first year Reithoffer Green unit played Colonial Days was in 1982. The Reithoffer Green unit would go to Colonial Days, then to Wellsboro Fire Dept. Carnival, Big Flats Community Days then onto Southport Fire Dept. Carnival. Then they dropped Big Flats in 1986 and added the Montour Falls Fire Dept. Carnival. Montour was either before Colonial Days some years or after Southport. For awhile the Reithoffer Green unit would go from Southport to the Trumansburg Fair.

PGAM's light blue unit played Montour a few times in the mid 90's. They took the Skywheel down there once or twice.
