Says Orange county fair in 1978, I couldn't confirm the show, to me looks like Deggeller with the ticket boxes, but could have been someone else. Maybe one of you knows who's show it was for sure.

Some nice shots of the Sky Wheel, Diver, Bumper Cars, Trooper, Cobra, Fun House, Tilt, Scram, Saturn 6, and others.

First Super 8 I have seen with sound as well.

Yeah, the Big A pretty much ha NY sewed up back then.

Surprised they didn’t seem to have a sleigh ride in there.

I think the film may have missed a lot of equipment.

Yeah, I can see that because Big A had a lot of music rides back then (or booked on).

Yeah, thought they must have missed some stuff.

Big A had a lot of stuff and played a lot of spots. How long were you with them?

Had a pretty good buddy named Jack (Bones) Bitzer that moved the Swiss Bobs in the ‘80s.
