Thanks for the photos Scott, maybe you can answer this. Did all the rides from Carol Stream make it to Erie this year, I know in the past they had all their rides up there and then at Syracuse. Earlier this summer someone posted here that CS was staying south this year, but it looks like their Sea Ray and Ali Baba in your pics. Without their rides I would expect a noticeable difference on the midway at Erie this year as they normally brought I'm guessing over 20 rides to that fair.

None of Carol Stream's rides are at the Erie County Fair this year. The Sea Ray belongs to Wheelock Rides. There are other Wheelock Rides that are booked into Hamburg as well...Puppy Roll and Hog Wild, both rides for kids.

The Ali Baba belongs to Bates Amusements

Nice pictures. Everything looks very nice.

One of the pictures that caught my eye is this one... http://s1144.photobucket....jpg.html?sort=2&o=1 Hudson Magic Midway, miniature carnival display. Interesting concept. Nice looking front/presentation.

I found this article online about it... http://www.orleanshub.com/news2...dy-for-big-debut_000.htm
