Steel Notes Magazine October 2016 Fair Recap THE GREAT ALLENTOWN FAIR End of the Summer: The Great Allentown Fair By Alexxis Steele @ ALLENTOWN FAIRGROUNDS SEPTEMBER 1, 2016 Once again it was that time of the year that heralds the end of the summer, the last hurrah of outdoor things to do when Labor Day leaves us to let fall weather set in. This year in 2016 our new Steel Notes Allentown team got together to have some fun riding some rides, eating, playing games and seeing some shows at The Great Allentown Fair and Maingate Nightclub. Alexxis Steele, Mick Reynolds, JR Muffley, Traci Dunton Shaw, Sherri Max Sweeney and Chris Black embarked on our journey to the land of Funnel Cakes, steak sandwiches, and the wheel of fortune to win some candy. Jr & Traci couldn’t wait to board the Khaos ride which swings you high in the sky and flips and twirls,, not for the faint of heart , as I taped it live for Facebook. As luck may have it, my favorite ride Coyote Run is still in operation, and I coerced first- timer Mick Reynolds to go on the ride with me. This year the fair had a great turnout as it did in previous years when you would always run into someone you had not seen in years, and were walking elbow deep with the crowd. We went through various rides, and games such as the wheel of fortune for candy, which Jr always cleans up on every year. Every year they have different kinds of shows, and this year it was about the wolves that were really cool, and they even allowed us to pet a baby wolf. Besides the amusements,games, food and shows, you can’t leave the fair without catching some of the live music at The Main Gate with local favorites like The Cherry Bombs, M80, and Stereotype.
