Just found out, NAME is operating this week in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Don't know much about it other than what they have posted on their FB page. FW is 3.5 hours from me, so I won't be making that trip, but they do supply the midway at the State Fair in Indianapolis which has not cancelled yet, so maybe some hope here???

I've never been "with it", just been an interested observer of carnivals for more than 50 years.

The carnival of my youth, which had roots that originated in my hometown.

Sorry guys, I got a little over excited here and posted before I realized it is a food fair. So just food joints of NAME are here for this event. No rides.

I was going to say the same thing-just the food stands.

Speaking of NAME...I got notification that they are going to take over the operation of the Independent Midway food stands at the Mississippi State Fair. I don't know if that's because there was a reduction in force as far as the state government goes or this is just the first step towards them having the fair fence to fence (they can have it) or what.

For one dollar I'll guess your weight, your height, or your sex.

As far as I know right now the South Carolina state fair is still a "go", but quite a few more months till then, so anything can change.

The late/summer (end of August - September) and fall fairs still have a chance, especially in some states that have been more lenient about easing restrictions as long as there isn’t a second wave.

Those fairs have also have more time to think about how to implement social distancing and other restrictions to work into their fair plans.

It would be nice to get to see some Fairs happen but my guess right now is 50-50 on all of them right now.

So no kissing in the tunnel, need to put a barrier between two people in one tub, only use every other tub...…….OH and vomit, nope can't do it.....sorry hold it in till the ride is completed, then you can slip slide to the front side and get a small bio hazard bag that has to be burned in a barrel behind the fun house.


Trying DJing through a mask....that should be interesting as well...."do you want to go faster" comes out as muffled "mphmmhphmommhou?"
