Srates Shows is setting up in the parking lot of Dutchess Stadium,in Fishkill,NY. The Giant Wheel was half up,but it was raining pretty hard. Most of the other rides were up. Last year they put up the wheel,then several days later took it down.

Probably Middletown because freight runs on that side of the river. The dutchess side of the river is people trains.

I believe they sent a truck unit to NY, at least that's what was reported in the last article we posted.

They must have got snowed on last night as I know parts of VT got 6 to 8 inches and I got almost an inch here in NJ last night.
Technically their whole show, with the exception of the Top Spin, could be a Truck Show if required. Anyone know what they have up there? May make a trip to see them this weekend.
thanks

Always hated working in the cold or snow. I remember one spring spot we played it started to snow before the end of the week, but the boss said "tear it down" and we did in cold rain first, then snow, about 8 in that year I think, March snow.
thanks 1 user thanked thunderbolt85 for this useful post.

Not true, CSX runs a pair of freight trains each day down the Amtrak/Metro North line into and out of NYC
