Fair: New Midway Operator Takes Over
Posted March 13th, 2014 @ 5:30am by Jim Donovan

The New York State Fair says they will have a new midway operator beginning this summer. 

The fair says Wade Shows out of Livinia, Michigan was selected during a bidding process that started last summer.  They say the show has two of the biggest portable roller coasters around, and will be bringing at least one of them.  They also have a huge variety of rides and attractions, and will rotate them from year to year so there will always be new or different rides from fair to fair. They replace Strates Shows, which had run the midway at the State Fair for over 70 years.
