New Ride Vendor Selected for Fair

GREENEVILLE-The Greeneville Fair Board has decided to go with another ride vendor following an accident last year.

The Fair Board opted to go with Florida-based Belle City Amusements Inc starting in 2017.

The board broke its contract with Family Attractions, LLC after three girls were hurt when the Ferris Wheel owned by Family Attractions overturned on August 8th.

Belle City is not without its own safety issues. Back in September in Memphis, a ride operator accidently released safety restraints before a ride came to a complete stop injuring four people.

Fair Board President Rick Clark says the Belle’s Insurance Company has said that was a minor incident.
