No fowl at any New York Fairs this year
New York State Proactively Bans All Fowl Competitions at the Great New York State Fair and All County Fairs to Safeguard against Avian Flu – Current Influenza Strains are No Threat to Humans
We are very disappointed not to be able to exhibit any birds this year. That includes the hatching demonstration Chicken Follies, chicken and ducks. We hope that this is a temporary ban and will be looking for other ways to share the passion of poultry with the public.
Welcome Dreamland Amusements
The Altamont Fair gives a hearty welcome to Kathy and Bob DeStefano from Dreamland Amusements. They will be bringing the carnival and midway to the Altamont Fair. Look for Delusion – Its 76 passengers are lifted high into the air, and then spun around 360 degrees. At the same time, its passengers are seated at an angle of 8 o'clock and 2 o'clock. Adding to the sensory overload are pulsating LED lights and the thump of music from the Rolling Stones and other classics.
