BLOOMSBURG,PA FAIR NEWS...


Bloomsburg Fair announces skyride

Published: July 8, 2010
Visitors to the Bloomsburg Fair will now have the chance to get a bird's eye view of the festivities, courtesy of a new ride.
During a fair directors' meeting this week, officials announced that a skyride would be set up over the fair's main drag.
The ride will stretch 2,000 feet from Gate 3 to Leonard Street, and installation will be handled by fair ride operator, Reithoffer Amusements.
According to the Press Enterprise of Bloomsburg, a contract to permit the ride was signed before a vote was taken by the fair board members. However, approval is still needed from the town of Bloomsburg and the state Department of Agriculture's ride inspection division.
During the meeting, attendees were split in their support of the ride. Some voiced concerns about the ride's safety, while representatives from other fairs testified that they have had no problems with their skyrides, according to the newspaper.
Supporters said the ride would bring in money to the fair and keep the weeklong event competitive with other area attractions.
The fair will be held Sept. 25 to Oct. 2
