Was in Cherokee NC this week and found this show in town for ten days, first time seeing them.

Nice small midway with an Eli wheel, Trabant, Gravitron, Paratrooper, Hustler, MGR, and about 6 other kiddie rides. Had about 4 food joints and 8 or 10 games, two power plants and one ticket box.

Free parking and admission, believe was tickets and armbands.

Checked out their website and saw they have few more rides that weren't there including a Zipper, and Tip Top which would have loved to have seen and a few more kiddies.

C&M Southern midways, yes at the fairgrounds I believe, there was a big half shell stage area, nice fenced in area but no gate charge.

Fairgrounds in Cherokee are on the reservation which is Federal Governed property, same as a military base. That means the state of North Carolina does not inspect rides set up on Federal property. That is why some shows like playing there. decent money plus no NC inspections.
