Ok, thanks for that, did he bring his Himalaya on up there for that spot, or did he book another one?

Hmmm... If that's the case, I wonder who would be interested in bidding? [;)]

Doing nothing is tiresome because you can't stop to rest.

Strates Shows and the Erie County Fair have had a long relationship, longer than even the NY state fair I believe and unless he decides to stop going there I don't think anyone has a chance at that contract, my opinion, but with NYSF you got a bunch of new people in there that do not appreciate loyalty or a job well done for 60 years, again my opinion.

Does quality of midway play a role in anything?

Strates has been at Hamburg for 90 years, the only show they've ever had.

In this day and age, nothing is forever. look at the midway changes made at some major fairs in the last few years. Fair boards/managers visit other fairs and see what is there and like it. cannot get complacent anymore. many years ago I made contact with a midway operator about a fair changing from them but they thought they were OK. well they were not and lost a good spot they had for 20 some years. Carnivals today have to keep in contact with their fairs/spots year round and with the use of technology that is not hard to do.

There's a "Musik Express" in those pictures that were posted. Unless some of those pictures are from another year, it sure looks like a Himalaya to me!

Not a Himalaya, but there's also a "Thunder Bolt". The pictures show a really nice variety of rides there this year.

DUDE: Their "REAL HIMALAYA" is NOT set up, Yes Strates has a REAL HIMALAYA

Music Express belongs to Tim Magid

Thunderbolt belongs to Strates
