Came across this name today and remember it from AB years ago, never saw the show, but wanted to know any history anyone could provide on it like what rides they carried, what was the route like, and what happened to them.

Thanks in advance.

Ledel Shows mostly played out west, mainly Texas. Midsize but as with so many shows as a jointee I never paid much attention to their rides. Played a few spots with them ..... 83 was it? Somewhere around there anyway. Spring spots so nothing really stands out in my memory with them. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Bill Hames Shows The Original show was left to Mr. Hames two grandsons.

Gene Ledel and Buster Brown. They each got a unit. Brown kept the name BHS and Ledel changed it to his name.

GLS no long exist and the BHS is now known as Carnival Americana. (Hardly hear or see of this show)

Buster Brown is Mary Talley's Father Talley Amusements.
