You guys may have seen this video, but I hadn't and thought it was great, some really great shots of older shows that brought back good memories, even of music ride guys waving them in. If you haven't seen it, enjoy:

Awesome find...Love the midways of this era, which I'm guessing is the late 70s or very early 80s. Of course, I'm partial to anything related to Johnny's United Shows, as this Show originated in my hometown. This video though looks like it is from the Arthur Lampkin era. Still seen some very familiar rides that visited our local festival. Especially loved the Cortina Bobs.

Thanks for posting the link thunderbolt! Great times.
I've never been "with it", just been an interested observer of carnivals for more than 50 years.
Johnny's United Shows..."A Family Tradition" and "All for Fun, Fun for All".
The carnival of my youth, which had roots that originated in my hometown.

The Strates scenes are from the late '70s AND the early '80s.
