I was looking at past carnivals that has played our fair back to 1978. This World of Mirth that is suspose to play the fair next week were here in 1978 when they had a live elephant ride. Well someone shot the elephant while a child was riding it bullet went through the ear and into the shoulder. Elephant transported to Savannah GA. to animal hospital Does anyone remember this or hear about it? That year I remember the incident but also remember the rides stayed racked well beyond a month for some reason on the grounds but the trucks said Royal Amusements but the articles say World of Mirth Shows. Anyway it was shot with a high powered rifle from across the street.

Now that Larry Carr is with Strates shows it will be interesting to see who he uses to suitcase spots and what equipment of his own will be there.

I am bit confused here about a couple of things,

First, I thought the World of Mirth Shows was out of business, once owned and operated by Little Richard Thomas.

Second, are you saying that Larry Carr is going to book a unit into this fair

Third, is Larry Carr now working for Strates Shows? If so, that is very interesting. Thanks.

If Larry is booking for strates or helping with the show I doubt he would have much time to play with spots like Lancaster. Who knows he may have found his niche. I wish him luck as he has proven himself to be one of the best booking agents in history.
