As the midway for the Great Frederick Fair began to come together Tuesday, Jeff Alberts was overseeing a flurry of activity.
Teams of workers assembled the rides, moving panels and hammering pieces into place, as supervisors zipped around in golf carts, and tractor-trailers moved rides and other supplies.
In a white hard hat, white long-sleeved T-shirt with black grease spots, sunglasses and shorts, Alberts sometimes shouted to make himself heard over the dull roar of the trucks and the generators that would power the rides.
Alberts is the safety supervisor for Reithoffer Shows, the company based outside of Tampa, Fla., that supplies the rides to the fair.
Reithoffer has brought about 45 rides to Frederick, most of which have to be assembled at each stop and then torn down when it’s time to move to the next town.
