Height issue on rides at Fair
KERSEY – A last-minute notification at the Elk County Fair will prevent some individuals from enjoying the rides on the fairgrounds.According to Jamie Wolfe, grounds manager, children who are not at least 36 inches tall are unable to ride on the Midway Rides of Utica's equipment."It's all due to unforeseen circumstances and it's not the Fair's fault," Wolfe said. "The manufacturers of the rides told [Midway Rides of Utica] that their requirements and assessments of the rides say no riders less than 36 inches tall."Pick up a copy of the Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2012 edition of The Ridgway Record for more.
