New Ride Company in 2013
The Summer in the City Fest is pleased to announce that in 2013 we'll host Bates Amusement, Inc. as our new carnival ride company.

In addition to a large fleet of 45 trucks, portable offices, generators and living accommodations for employees, they are among the largest supplier of amusement rides for county fairs and festivals in the State of Ohio. During the winter months all of their equipment is serviced and reviewed by their year round maintenance team. All equipment is scheduled for regular maintenance to ensure the highest quality of safety and appearance possible. All equipment is also subject to mandatory licensing and inspections by the State of Ohio.
