Sharptown Fireman's Carnival in Sharptown, MD. is a perfect example of hometown owned carnival. They usually have it from mid July to mid August, apprx. 24 days, where they own and operate there own rides. All the rides are kept under cover by either a large pole barn or large garage-type building with roll-up doors. The local firmen maintain and perform maintenance on the rides. They actually have a few antique rides that you don't see that often. There is a Scrambler,Eli Ferris Wheel, A/H Antique Carousel, Super Slide, Tilt-A-Whirl, and Tornado and for the younger children they have the Mangles Pony Carts, Mangles Fire Engines, A/H Skyfighter, Mangles Kiddie Whip, Hampton Antique Cars,Jolly Caterpillar, Mangles Kiddie Ferris Wheel, and kiddie chair swing ride. At one time they also had a Space Train and a small trailer-mounted Wenie Whip ride...not sure what happened to those rides.
