To say that a Carnival is not an important part of a fair, go without one. Carnival's not only bring additional revenue to the fair, but also the community that it serves. Providing family entertainment is just one aspect of the Carnival. The carnival spends a large amount of the money that they make in the community as well. Diesel fuel and gasoline, advertising, parts and tires not to mention all of the money that is spent by the employees. The need to eat, purchase weekly necessities, etc. Carnivals are a major part of any fair or festival. I truly hope that your fair finds another carnival for next years' event.

Mr. Baceski, Your comments are out of line. If you have a beef with me, you should take it up with me and not in this forum. As for me being a thief. Big Sky Amusements was a Corporation that I was just a Manager of. There were six Officers of that Company and although that company had filed for bankruptcy protection and consequently liquidated it's assests, I fail to see how that Companies' actions consequents me being a "theif".
I am sure that you have documentation to back up your claims. Big Sky Amusements opened in January of 1987 and operated through May of 1998.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
